Nine students from Nepal attending Kansas State University have been indicted on charges of visa fraud, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Tuesday.
 
Grissom said a grand jury indictment unsealed Tuesday alleges the students conspired to maintain their non-immigrant visas by making false statements that they possessed funds to pursue their proposed course of study and support themselves and their dependents.
 
The indictment alleges that beginning in the fall of 2008 all nine students gained temporary possession of financial resources for the purpose of obtaining statements from financial institutions to support their false claims that each personally had the needed funds. Each of the students temporarily obtained funds from fellow Nepalese students and deposited the funds in their bank accounts. After obtaining a notarized bank letter, they returned the funds to the other students.
 
If convicted, each of the defendants faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000 on each count.
 
Named in the indictment were:
 
■ Mahendra Thapa, 33, who is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit visa fraud and one count of visa fraud.
 
■ Khem Acharya, 41, who is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit visa fraud and four counts of visa fraud.
 
■ Raj Kumar Dani, 37, who is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit visa fraud and three counts of visa fraud.
 
■ Santosh Ghimire, 37, who is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit visa fraud and one count of visa fraud.
 
■ Lila Ballav Pandey, 41, who is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit visa fraud and four counts of visa fraud.
 
■ Laxman Pokhrel, 37, who is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit visa fraud and two counts of visa fraud.
 
■ Keshar Prasain, 38, who is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit visa fraud and four counts of visa fraud.
 
■ Govind Paneru, 32, who is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit visa fraud and three counts of visa fraud.
 
■ Narayan Chapagain, 43, who is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit visa fraud and three counts of visa fraud.
 
The Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security investigated.
 
Assistant U.S. attorney Richard Hathaway is prosecuting.

 not saying that what they did was 100% right. probably only 1% of students who came to US had genuine paperwork. there are loopholes everywhere and thats what they tried to use but unfortunately they got caught.

aba we know they are in trouble tehi bhayera thought that the OLDEST and most PRESTIGIOUS nepali association in the USA could/would do something to make this process easier for those poor nepali students.

president ko nai kura garney bhaye.....yehi desh ma nai ho president le office ma sex garera pani kehi nabhako!

 I think ANA is profit oriented organization. They make Huge amount of money and share the profit amoung their members, and it is worthless to expect help  from ANA or Ambassador . I have never heard that ANA helped to anybody who needs real help. Right now, so called popular and powerfull people are gathered in NY but noday raised this issue in the programs. As far as i know the case is alrady in court ,so nobody can do anything  except good trial lawyers.

 Snowfed river. 
 
I will take a stab at your question. Remember NSA, CIA, FBI, etc.. Well that's probably how they got caught after 5 years. 
 
Everything is monitored by uncle Sam. All credit card and banking transactions, phone calls, social networking posts, youtube videos and what not. I would say they probably know more about me than I know about myself. 
 
It's unfortunate that those highly educated people got caught, while most other fake asylum seekers who dropped out of school and setting wrong examples for gullible Nepalis got away.

संसारमा धेरै थरि मानिसहरु हुन्छन् । ती मध्ये एक थरीलाई रमिते भनिन्छ । रमितेहरुले के गर्छन् भनेर उनीहरुको छिमेकमै कसैको घरमा आगो लागेको बेलामा त्यहाँ अगाडि उभिन्छन् र यसरी अनेक विचार विमर्श गर्छन्, मानौ यो उनिहरुको लागि कुनै रमाइलो हो । एउटाले भन्छ ' यो घरको घरमूली सार्है चुरोट खानुपर्ने, अनि चुरोट खाएर जथाभावी ठुटा फाल्ने, आगो त्यही ठुटाबाट लागेको हो ।" अर्कोले बाजी ठोक्छ " हैन यो घरकी आइमाइ जहिले पनि खाना पकाएपछि चुल्हो राम्ररी ननिभाउने, आगो त्यसैबाट सल्केको हुनुपर्छ ।' अर्कोले थप्छ, "हैन घरकी बूढी बज्यैलाई धूप बालेर जताततै राख्नुपर्ने, आगो त्यहीबाट सल्केको हुनुपर्छ ।' अनेक विचार विवेचना हुन्छ तर ती मध्ये कसैले एक बाल्टिन कतैबाट खोजेर ल्याएर आगो निभाउने प्रयत्न गर्दैन ।

अहिले आपतमा परेका यी नेपालीहरुलाई गर्ने सहयोग भनेको कानूनी, कुटनैतीक र आर्थिक नै हो । अब हामीले गरेर हुनेवाला केही छैन सबै सकिसक्यो भन्ने साथीहरुले के बिर्सनु भएन भने अहिलेसम्म उनीहरुमाथि आरोप मात्र लागेको हो, अपराध प्रमाणित भइसकेको छैन । अझ सिंगै कानूनी लडाईं बाँकी नै छ । के उनीहरुको तर्फबाट राम्रा वकिलहरुले मुद्दा लडे भने उनीहरुले पाउने सजाय कम हुनसक्दैन ? अनि राम्रा वकिलहरु राख्नलाई पनि त उनिहरुलाई आर्थिक सहयोगको खाँचो पर्नसक्छ । नेपालीको लागि केही गर्छौ भनेर स्थापना भएका र नेपालीको नाम बेचेर खाने संस्थाहरुले यस्तो आपतमा परेका नेपालीहरुलाई आफ्नै अग्रसरतामा सहयोग गर्नु उनीहरुको नैतिक दायित्व र जिम्मेवारी हो । हामीले त सम्झाउने र झक्झकाउने कार्य गरेका मात्र हौ र सहयोगको लागि नेपाली राजदूतावास र ANA लाई गुहारेका हौ । म आशावादी छैन कि हामी केहीले यसरी साझामा लेख्दैमा कुनै ठुलो पहाडै खस्ला र रातारात सब ठीक होला तर पनि कतै कसैले हाम्रो कुरा पढि पो हाल्छ कि भनेर यति लेखेको हो ।

तर हैन एक जना अति बुझक्कडले यसरी सहयोग माग्नुलाई ANA लाई दोष दिएको र गाली गरेको बुझेछन् । संजीवनी बुटी ल्याउ भनेर पठाउदा पुरै द्रोणाचल पर्वत नै बोकेर ल्याउने हे अति बुद्दिमान हनुमान ! आफ्नो ख्वामितलाई के भन्देउ भने यदी उनको र उनको सेनाको रुची नितम्ब हल्लाउनु र नितम्ब हल्लाएको हेर्नु मात्र हो भने नेपालीको नाम बेचेर खान छोडिदिए हुन्छ । राम बन्नलाई आफ्नो परिवारको खुशी त्यागेर भए पनि दुनियाँ संसारको खुशीको बारेमा बढी सोच्नुपर्छ । होइन भने तिम्रो ख्वामितलाई राम बन्ने कुनै अधिकार छैन र तिम्रो हैसियत पनि एउटा ढेडुको भन्दा कत्ति बढी छैन ।

Just saw an UPDATE from : http://www.mysansar.com/2013/07/5453/#more-5453
 
========================================

जहाँसम्म कानुनी रूपमा लड्ने कुरा छ, त्यो हामी धेरैलाई थाहा भएकै कुरा हो, यहाँ वकिलको खर्च साह्रै महँगो छ। यदि हरेक विद्यार्थीले आ-आफ्नो तर्फबाट वकिल राख्नुपर्‍यो भने वकिलको लागि मात्र सालाखाला एक जनाले २५-३५ हजार अमेरिकी डलरसम्म खर्च गर्नुपर्ने देखिन्छ। अहिले अभियोग लागेका (जो पढिराखेका र भर्खर पढेर काम सुरू गरेका) छन्, उनीहरूको लागि असम्भव जस्तै छ। त्यो बेला हामीले फेरि सबै नेपाली दाजुभाइहरूसँग सहयोग लिनुपर्ने अवस्था आउन सक्छ। हामी आशावादी छौं, यो घटनामा हामी हारेको खण्डमा भोलि अरू धेरै नेपाली विद्यार्थी साथीहरूलाई असर गर्ने हुनाले सबैले आ-आफ्नोतर्फबाट सक्दो सहयोग गर्नुहुनेछ। कहीँकतै निःशुल्क कानुनी परामर्शका कुरा पनि उठेका छन्, त्यो पनि हामीले बुझिराखेका छौं। नेपाली राजदूतावासले पनि यसमा केही सहयोग गर्ला भन्ने हाम्रो अपेक्षा छ।

 Nayapidi kid chill out. I haven't said anything that's not true. You can disagree with me but that's my personal opinion. 
Yes I hate all fake asylum seekers. They have broken the law (lied under oath) and have set wrong example to gullible people who instead of working hard and following the law opt out for the easy route. I do hope that USCIS also monitors this website and someday will prosecute them. Enough said. Feel free to spew all hatred towards me but it doesn't change the fact.

It's sad to hear about these gentlemen who are in trouble for borrowing money from friends. I think if they have a good lawyer they will be set free immediately.

The requirement for them was to show bank balance which they did, there is no law to verify how the money is attained. The money could very well have been begged, borrowed or stolen and it is not upto any agency to prosecute someone from borrowing money.

People borrow money all the time. Most of the US economy itself is based on taking loans and paying interest. So it is OK to take a loan of money and show bank balance but it's not OK to take loan from a friend to show bank balance.

It is unfortunate to see some harmless individuals being prosecuted for such a petty action.

whatever heck happened, it has put all other Nepalese students those here and planning to be here under scrutiny. Process will be tightened/delayed, more rules and hassles.
I'm 100% sure that its the work of some swine within us.

 Bittertruth regardless of the fact whether somebody reported them or it was somehow found through government's security program, Nepalese should be careful not to break laws in this country. It almost seems like newly arriving people are getting wrong ideas and wrong suggestions from some morons. The other day I saw someone asking for fake tran. I've seen many asking for fake asylum documents. I think it's time all Nepalis realize that this is not Nepal where you can break laws and walk freely. Work hard go follow the right path, do your dues. Ask for guidance from mentors and college advisors. Breaking the law should not be an option. Never!!
Either abide by the laws in this country or go somewhere else.

Don't you think they have lied?  Coming here as a student and working on cash is legal?? BTW I am not showing any hatred or anything towards you, but people like you who tries to pull leg or get envy of others success (whatever and however it be) just makes me sick.

Nayapidi. So you are saying it's ok to break the law and set wrong examples to new immigrants and that that kind of mentality is better than mine? BTW I think you should improve your comprehension. I never said PhD holders didn't break the law. They broke the law. I just happen to sympathize with them because they are the pillars of American innovation. 
I don't care about others success or failures. Its their own business. But if someone did come to me for advice, I will give them a good one which is not to break any laws. The path may be long and hard but that's the right one. 
From what you are implying, you seem to be ok with giving that kind of advice (ok to break the law because you think that establishes Nepali brotherhood?? )
