A complaint from an Indian-American student who was near the top of his high school Class but was rejected by both Harvard and Princeton universities has triggered an investigation by the US Education Department.

The unnamed Indian-American student in California complained that the two universities discriminate against Asian-Americans in undergraduate admissions, according to a media Bloomberg report.

According to the Education Department’s Office of Civil Rights the complaint was received Aug 22 and the allegations “accepted for investigation” January 11.
