Ramdev aide had fake degree: CBI

New Delhi: Yoga guru Ramdev’s close aide Balkrishna faced fresh trouble with the CBI claiming that the university degree used by him to get a passport was fake.
The Registrar of Sampurna Nand Sanskrit University Rajnish Shukla said the investigating agency came to the conclusion after records were matched. The enrolment numbers indicated in the fudged documents belong to a different student, he added.
Balkrishna’s two degrees ‘Purv Madhyama’, a high school degree issued in 1991 and ‘Shastri’, a Sanskrit degree in 1996 don’t figure in the university’s records, he said.
The documents show Krishna Sanskrit Mahavidyalaya, an affiliate of the university, as the issuing authority, Shukla said adding the vicechancellor has declared the documents as fake.
The CBI had taken all the documents from the Ballery Passport office after the agency registered a Preliminary Enquiry (PE) to probe whether Balkrishna had acquired the travel documents using forged documents.
CBI officials said there were allegations that Balkrishna had fudged certain documents and had acquired passports using forged documents which is a punishable offence under the Indian Passport Act. he charges have been denied by Ramdev-controlled Patanjali Yogapeeth Trust. PTI
