Baisoya has been under a cloud over allegations of securing admission in Delhi University on the basis of a fake degree from the Thiruvalluvar University in Vellore, Tamil Nadu.
He is currently a student of Department of Buddhist Studies and is the centre of an inquiry by that department.
The controversy surrounding Baisoya’s certificates triggered when the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) circulated a letter in September, issued by the Controller of Examination of the Thiruvalluvar University dismissing Baisoya’s graduation mark-sheet bearing that varsity’s stamp and logo as “fake”.
Later, the troubles piled up for Baisoya after a letter issued by the Thiruvalluvar University Registrar surfaced stating that the education certificates provided by Baisoya from that university were “fake” and that he was not enrolled in the university.
In a letter on October 3 to the Principal Secretary, Department of Higher Education, Tamil Nadu government, Registrar V. Peruvalluthi stated: “I hereby submit that Mr Ankiv Baisoya has not enrolled either in our university or in any of our constituent of affiliated colleges and is not our student at all.”
Taking cognisance of the media reports regarding Baisoya’s alleged fake degree, it further read: “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 official verification of records of the Controller of Examination office.”
