A news media agency, ‘The Wire’ interviewed Immigration consultants in Punjab and Canada about the rising visa rejections. The interviewer said that it was owing to the high volume of visa applications, forged documents submissions by the students, affiliation issues of the colleges, and the gang war involving Punjabi men in Canada (Singer Sidhu’s murder case). Expect more such incidences said the consultant.
