The National Students Union of India (NSUI), on Wednesday wrote to Delhi University Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi seeking action against the newly elected Student’s Union President Ankiv Baisoya.
The party accused him of allegedly submitting fake documents to get admission in Master’s in Buddhist Studies. The NSUI on Tuesday circulated what they claimed was Baisoya’s bachelor’s degree along with a letter from the Tamil Nadu-based Thiruvalluvar University, claiming that it was fake.
V Peruvalluthi, registrar of Thiruvalluvar University, said the certificate sent by the NSUI for verification is fake. “We have examined the copy of that degree certificate. It is obviously a fake one,” he said.
However, Baisoya said that it is the propaganda of NSUI. “The NSUI is trying every tactic against me after losing the DUSU polls. I was very much a student at Thiruvalluvar University between 2013 and 2016,” he said.
Baisoya said he could not recall the nature of the course he pursued at the Thiruvalluvar University. “I studied many subjects including English but I do not remember the other subjects,” he said.
The NSUI filed a complaint against Baisoya, the ABVP has denied the allegations.
