New York (Agencies): India on Saturday said that the Indian students of California-based Tri Valley University should be absorbed into other US universities and not victimised.

Tri Valley University has been shut down on charges of massive visa fraud.

"The student who came in good faith, they should not be victimised," External Affairs Minister SM Krishna told reporters here.

"It is necessary they should be absorbed into other universities in the United States and allowed to pursue their studies," he added.

According to a federal complaint filed in a California court in January, the University helped foreign nationals illegally acquire immigration status. The university is said to have 1,555 students. As many as 95 per cent of these students are Indian nationals, the complaint said.

ICE has called it as a "Sham University", a charge denied by the University.

Ankle monitors send a radio frequency signal containing location and other information to a receiver.

US immigration authorities have removed radio tags from the ankles of two Indian students.

Krishna, who has previously called the tagging as "inhuman", said that he had expressed his "resentment" against the practice.
