India has condemned US authorities for tagging Indian students who, it says, were duped by a fake university.
External Affairs Minister SM Krishan said Indian students were "not criminals" and that radio collars put around their ankles must be removed.
US authorities have shut down the Tri-Valley University near San Francisco, accusing it of an immigration fraud.
The university has more than 1,500 students and reports say nearly 95% of them are from India.
Most of the students are reported to be from the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh and many of them now face deportation.
In the state capital, Hyderabad, members of the All India Students' Federation have demonstrated against the Tri-Valley University near the US consulate.
"We demand that the US government initiate severe action against those officials responsible for this inhuman act," Mr Krishna told reporters in the southern city of Bangalore on Sunday.
"Indian students are not criminals. The radio collars should immediately be removed," he said.
"We have conveyed to the US authorities that the students, most of who are victims themselves, must be treated fairly and reasonably," the ministry said in a statement.
The students have been forced to wear radio collars around their ankles so that the US authorities can keep track of their movements.

The DREAM Act Amnesty Expands
The Obama Regime has expanded its DREAM Act amnesty from those illegal alien students who were brought here as children by their parents to aliens attending fraudulent unaccredited universities in the United States. After congratulating themselves for busting the fraudulent Tri-Valley University, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has released the few illegal alien students arrested in the operation against TVU, even though it was obvious that the "students" were in on the fraud.
"Duped" is not an accurate term for the Indian students, as hundreds used the same apartment address on their immigration and university records. They knew it and the Obama Regime and ICE are in on the lie. The policy of allowing the illegals to remain to use the lengthy deportation process is itself criminal. Even worse is releasing them from custody, which only encourages them to use the process to their advantage. So now we have thousands of illegal aliens clogging up the deportation system, they remain here and undoubtedly have been given employment authorization. Not bad for cheating and lying, rewarded with a Social Security Card and employment authorization.
