Not just Indian students, but tourists and businessmen, have been deported by the US in recent months, the external affairs ministry has said.

According to a report in Hindustan Times, the ministry said, "Some Indian nationals travelling on business/tourism/work visas have also been deported."

"They include holders of B-1 and B-2 US visas, for tourists and businesspersons, and H-1s, which are work permits," said an external affairs ministry official to HT.

US ambassador to India, Richard Verma, has said that the embassy has come to know about the difficulty faced by a few students who were advised by the Air India authorities to cancel their trip to the US due to the fear of deportation.
