US IMMIGRATION has arrested an Indian for running a major visa fraud racket and seized $ 5.7 million (Rs 25.65 cr) in assets.

Narendra Mandalapa of New Jersey filed about 1,000 possibly fraudulent labour-based petitions on behalf of Indians and Pakistanis. Investigators uncovered two shell companies in New Jersey for filing the fraudulent petitions for skilled computer workers. A fraud detection unit of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services sat up when it noticed a pattern of fraud in petitions for immigration benefits submitted by Mandalapa.
