The National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) on Tuesday alleged that the newly elected Delhi University Students’ Union president Ankiv Baisoya of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has submitted a fake degree BA degree to secure admission in MA Buddhist Studies in Delhi University.

The NSUI alleged that it had contacted Thiruvalluvar University from where Mr. Baisoya had obtained his BA degree and provided a letter from the Controller of Examinations from the Vellore district-based university saying that the certificate submitted for verification was “not genuine” and it was a “fake certificate”.

The Hindu independently contacted Thiruvalluvar University with the Registrar incharge V. Peruvalluthi saying, “This letter has been sent from our Controller’s office. It has been signed by our Controller. The certificate is without any doubt fake.”

Rubbishes claims

The ABVP and Mr. Baisoya himself when contacted rubbished the NSUI’s claims and said that Delhi University had given him admission after due verification of the documents submitted.

“Delhi University gave admission to Ankiv Baisoya after due verification of its documents. It is the process of DU. Even today, DU has all the right to verify documents of any student enrolled in the university. But it is not the job of the NSUI to provide certificates to any person. DU has all the right to verify documents of not only Baisoya but all DUSU office-bearers to stop rumours in future,” said ABVP spokesperson Monica Chaudhary.

Ms. Chaudhary went on to question the authenticity of the document being circulated by the NSUI saying, “At first, the NSUI claimed that they had received the letter via an RTI reply. Then, when we pointed out that the letter was not in the RTI reply format, they said that they got it from inside sources. The document is not even dated properly.”

Delhi University officials did not give an official comment but university sources said that a committee would be set up to look into the allegations. The ABVP had recently bagged three posts, including that of the president, in the Delhi University Students’ Union elections last week.
