New Delhi: Breaking silence over fake certificate row against DUSU president Ankiv Baisoya, the Thiruvallur University has confirmed the allegations.
K Murugan, vice-chancellor of Thiruvalluvar University has written to the Tamil Nadu government confirming the same and said TOI on Thursday that a letter was sent on Wednesday after the TN government had asked for a response on the matter, TOI reports.
NSUI has alleged that the ABVP’s Baisoya has submitted fake certificates during his admission to the Buddhist studies department.
Responding to the allegations levelled against Ankiv Baisoya, the registrar in the letter addressed to TN higher education department’s principal secretary said, the official verification records had found the certificate to be fake.
“I hereby submit that Mr Ankiv Baisoya has not enrolled either in our university or in any of our constituent or affiliated colleges and is not our student at all,” he stated in the letter.
“The certificate he has produced is fake and not from our university. The controller of examination has issued a letter stating that the certificate is not genuine after verification of records of the controller of examination office.”
Reacting to the confirmation and new developments, NSUI Delhi president Akshay Lakra said, “The letter clearly states that the document submitted by Baisoya was fake. The head of the department, K T S Sarao, is trying to save Baisoya as he is ABVP’s candidate. Even after 15 days of submitting our complaint to DU, they have failed to take any action against him. NSUI is left with no other option but to move court.”
Meanwhile, ABVP raising its doubts over the legality of the letter, they claimed: “There are no stamps on the letter, so we are not sure if the letter is even real.”
Monica Chaudhary, spokesperson for ABVP said they were waiting for DU to complete its investigation and give its assessment of the case.
