Cheating case lodged in connection with fake UGC notice to JNU

New Delhi, Mar 30 (PTI) A case of cheating and forgery has been registered in connection with the fake UGC notice to JNU for closure of schemes for study of social exclusion on a complaint by the body, police said today.

Delhi Police will probe who sent the forged letter ordering closure of JNU’s Centre for the Study of Discrimination and Exclusion, a senior police officer said.

After the letter surfaced, the University Grants Commission conducted an internal inquiry and it was found that the letter has forged signature and was faxed from somewhere in Mumbai, he said.

However, the Commission doesn’t have any centre in Mumbai. It is being probed from which number the letter was faxed, said the officer.
