Ankiv Baisoya, former leader from Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has been refused bail by a Delhi Court. Baisoya was elected as the president of Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU), shortly after which he tendered his resignations when the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) alleged that he had proffered fake certificates.
Former ABVP leader, Ankiv Baisoya’s bail application in the fake mark sheet case has been dismissed by a Delhi Court. They observed that this “custodial interrogation was necessary to unearth the racket of making forged and fabricated mark sheets/degrees”, as reported by the Indian Express.
Baisoya acquired admission under the University of Delhi’s (DU) M.A. program in Buddhist Studies course in July and submitted mark sheets from Tamil Nadu’s Thiruvalluvar University (TU) for B.A. as his qualifying certification. The ABVP leader was elected DUSU president on 13th September 2018. Soon after the polls, the NSUI alleged he had submitted fake certificates, amidst these allegations the TU registrar wrote to the Tamil Nadu Department of Higher Education, stating that Baisoya was neither enrolled in the Varsity nor any of its constituents or affiliated institutions. Hence, Baisoya revoked his Presidency and was dismissed from ABVP. His candidature was taken by Shakti Singh, who remained President for DUSU 2018-19.
As reported by Indian Express, sessions Judge Mohammad Farrukh, in his order, said, “the investigation, in this case, is still going on and the applicant/accused is not cooperating in the investigation and has not disclosed the name of the person from whom the forged and fabricated mark sheet was obtained”. Reeta Sharma, the counsel for Delhi Police, told the court that Baisoya had not joined the investigation in the case, and asked the court to issue non-bailable warrants against him.
On the other hand, Baisoya’s advocates, Zeeshan Hashmi, and Salman Hashmi, revealed that he is busy appearing for another Court Case registered in 2017 where he is accused of entering Daulat Ram College in 2017 and damaging college property during a protest.
DU Beat contacted Mr. Siddharth Yadav, State Secretary, ABVP for a response but but he was unavailable to comment on the same.
