Two days after ABVP suspended Ankiv Baisoya and asked him to resign from his post, Delhi University on Saturday expelled him after it found him faking his educational certificates.

A senior police officer said that they got the information from Delhi University that his (Baisoya) admission has been cancelled. 

Sources said the police was informed of the cancellation after the university got a letter from the Thiruvalluvar University Registrar confirming that Baisoya was never a student of that university. 

Baisoya, who was elected as the DU students union President two months back, said on Facebook on November 15, the day he was expelled, that he was resigning his post. 

Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, the student group to which he belonged, too, suspended Baisoya on November 15, asking him to step down from the DUSU post. 

Baisoya has been expelled for submitting fake documents from Thiruvalluvar University at Vellore in Tamil Nadu to secure admission in Delhi University where he was a student of Buddhist Studies.
