Ankiv Baisoya, newly elected President of Delhi University Student Union (DUSU), tendered his resignation from his post on Thursday. Delhi University’s Department of Buddhist Studies of has cancelled his admission.
The BJPs student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) on Thursday asked Baisoya to step down citing intent to maintain the “genuineness” of the student union. The party also suspended him from the organisation till the inquiry gives it final report.
Officials said “the decision of admission cancellation was taken on Wednesday when the department of Buddhist studies received confirmation from Thiruvalluvar University who confirmed that Baisoya’s graduation’s mark sheet is fake.
Meanwhile, DUSU Secretary Akash Choudhary from the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) submitted a memorandum to the Vice-Chancellor on Friday, calling for fresh elections

Thiruvalluvar University’s controller of examinations B Senthil Kumar sent a copy of response to the head of Buddhist Studies KTS Sarao. Mr. Kumar, in a letter on November 13, said “With reference to the above, it is informed that the copy of the certificate of the following candidate has been verified and found that the said certificate is not genuine. It is a fake certificate.”
While Sarao remained unavailable for comment on account of being out of town, a DU official said, “Baisoya’s admission was cancelled on November 14 as soon as the letter was received. In a meeting of the admission committee along with all concerned authorities including the police were informed of the same.”
Reacting on the matter, Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi made fun of Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the issue on Friday. Playing with the term ‘surgical strike’ he said in his tweet that “what was happening in DU was a ‘farzical strike’. Farzi in Urdu means fake.
Soon after Baisoya’s appointment as a DUSU president on September 13, Congress-affiliated National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) had accused him of submitting a fake degree to secure admission in Delhi University. NSUI had later moved to Delhi High Court seeking cancellation of Baisoya’s admission.
