Mumbai University officials of the eligibility department lodged a police complaint against a data entry operator on Saturday for misusing the University letterhead to issue an eligibility letter to a bogus student.

Officials lodged a complaint against Sandesh Manjalekar at the Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) police station on Saturday evening.

“We have registered a case but not yet made an arrest as we are yet to find out the address,” said Vinayak Saude, senior police inspector of BKC police station.

The letter issued by Manjalekar using the university letterhead, certified that a certain student, Himanshu Bhatt, from the ‘Central Board of Higher Edcuation’ in Uttam Nagar in New Delhi was eligible for admission to first year degree courses affiliated to Mumbai University. However, no such board is recognised by the Council of Boards of School Education in India.

The letter was written in Hindi and dated June 1, 2011.

On Friday the university had issued a circular to its affiliated degree colleges to cancel any admission conducted on the basis of the bogus eligibility letter.
