According to reports, the  incident came to light after French officials found one of the boys with no valid documents and alerted Interpol.

The boys were from Delhi, Punjab and Haryana.

The reports said early in 2016, the agents had made the parents believe that their children were being taken to France for rugby training.

The reports quotred CBI spokesperson Abhishek Dayal as saying that  the parents were charged Rs 25 lakh to Rs 30 lakh each for the trip.

In their visa application, the agents had shown that the 25 children in the age group of 13-18 years were going to attend a rugby training camp in Paris.
