Study Abroad News: Indian Agent Who Provided Fake Admission Documents to Indian Jailed for 3 years

Brajesh Mishra, an overseas education agent who provided fake letters of admission for Canadian institutions to Indian students, has been jailed for 3 years in Canada. After 3 years, Mishra will be deported to India.

In a high-profile case that made national headlines in India, Mishra’s trial has concluded with a 3-year jail sentence being handed out. After completing the sentence, Mishra will be deported to India and will probably face litigation from the Indian Authorities. Mishra charges Indian students 1.4 to 1.6 million Indian Rupees for the fake documents to obtain student visas. This had put the futures of several Indian students in Canada in jeopardy before the Canadian government stepped in.

When the case came to light, Mishra was arrested in Canada in June 2023 for residing in Canada on an expired visa.

He pleading guilty to multiple Canadian immigration offences, mainly among which were misrepresentation and communicating false information.

Upon his deportation, Mishra faces multiple criminal charges in India chiefly among which is a human smuggling charge under the Punjab Travel Act. This act carries a maximum penalty of death.

Mishra charged students lakhs of rupees for the fraudulent documents, which at times led to their deportation.

Mishra’s arrest was in the aftermath of a long and intensive investigation by the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA). The investigation found links between Mishra and a large number of fake acceptance letters from Canadian colleges and universities provided to prospective international students from India between 2016 and 2020.
