AU set to cancel 23 students? admission
The admission of 23 students who got themselves admitted into different post graduate courses after furnishing wrong/ incomplete information in their affidavits is likely to be cancelled soon by Allahabad University authorities.
The three-member committee formed to investigate the affidavits has submitted its final report to the Vice-Chancellor on Tuesday.
It is worth mentioning that AU authorities, in a move to check the entry of students possessing post-graduate degrees, had made it mandatory to submit affidavits for students applying for PG courses. The authorities decided to scrutinise the affidavits submitted by the students following reports of false affidavits by some of the students.
A three-member committee headed by Prof HN Mishra was formed by the Vice-Chancellor to investigate the matter.
The committee has recommended for cancellation of the admissions of 23 students after scrutinising the affidavits and listening the reasons stated by the students for pursuing the PG course.
Head of the committee Prof HN Mishra said that the committee went through the records and affidavits submitted by 65 students for the PG courses out of which 23 admissions have been recommended for cancellation.
Prof Mishra said that 10 students had deliberately concealed facts in their affidavits while 13 double PG candidates did not turn up in front of the committee for giving a genuine reason for admission despite several notices sent to them at their permanent address and also at the address given in the records for communication.
"The 10 students who got admission by giving incorrect information or concealing facts include the so-called student leaders Ripusoodan Yadav, Dr Satiram Yadav, Zia Quonain Rizvi and Pradeep Narayan Dwivedi and six others", he said. Prof Mishra said, "Withheld admission of student's union publication secretary Kalpana has been cleared by the committee after getting a written statement by Kalpana stating not to indulge in non-academic activities. Besides, the authorities may also decide to lodge FIR against such students,” added Prof Mishra.
