Texila American University today gave its version of the story involving the attempted deportation of one of its former students

Texila American University today, gave its version of the story involving the attempted deportation of  one of its former students, Ragavendra  Balakrishnan.

At a press conference called today, the University said, Balakrishnan only became dissatisfied after he could not get the University to act in a certain way. They even went on to say that he became disenchanted with the University, after consistently failing some courses.

The issue of getting a job while on a student visa was also raised by the University.

In response to claims that the University tried to get him deported, Bhaskar said, that under the agreement signed with the authorities, they are responsible for the students they enroll in terms of their immigration status and their safety.

The officials at the University said that like any new institution there will be problems, but these are minor ones that the student has complained about, referring to accommodation and furniture. Their facilities they say, can accommodate up to 150 students.

The dissatisfied student was picked up last Thursday afternoon by Immigration authorities after going there to collect some certificates. He was released only after the intervention of Attorney General, Anil Nandalal, and Attorney-at-Law, Mortimer Codette. Balkrishnanan has since enrolled at the American International School of Medicine.
