NRI Rohit Saksena gets 3 year term for H1B Visa fraud

Saksena also fined for $40,000 by Federal Court 

A New Hampshire Federal Court has awarded 3-year jail term to Indian business man Rohit  Saxena and fined him with a penalty of $ 40 K for resorting to fraud  through his consulting firm in filing H1B VISA applications.

Saksena, 42, is the CEO of the New Hampshire based Saks IT Group LLC. He filed 45 fraudulent visa applications between  March 2014  and Dec 2015 in the name of providing foreign IT workers for a Cupertino City based firm. He cited independent agreements for this purpose but the agreements were found to be bogus in scrutiny.

Investigators found that the said company in Cupertino City didn’t enter into any agreements with Saks IT Group LLC.  And the candidates who got H1B Visas through Rohit Saksena owned company were appointed somewhere else.

During the investigation, Saksena pleaded guilty on May 1 for his fraudulent act. Indicting him for the fraud, the federal court gave him 3-year jail term and also fined him for $40,000.
