Your Education is Our World

Melbourne: A young Indian journalist was threatened and attacked after she went underground to reveal migration and education scams in Australia that try to defraud international students, including those from India.

The woman, working as a reporter with ABC TV, was threatened during the making of the program ‘Four Corners’ and was attacked over the weekend.

In an article on its website, ABC said the reporter went to two different migration agents posing as a customer wanting to pass an English Language Test without having the skills and told them that she was willing to buy a fake work certificate.

She was able to do both if she paid between $3,000 and $5,000.

The attack assumes significance in the wake of a series of racially-motivated attacks on Indian students in Australian cities.
