Probe forgery of court order: HC to VTU

The High Court of Karnataka on Friday issued direction of the registrar of Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) to hold an enquiry with regard to fabrication of the court order by its students.

Justcie B V Nagarathna issued a show cause notice to the students and colleges who had forged the court order and asked them to file their response by December 29.

The petitioners had earlier approached the court challenging the non-recognition of the one-time exit scheme of the VTU by the colleges.

Earlier this year, the varsity had announced a one-time exit scheme for non-CBCS (choice based credit system) students, under which students who failed were not to be detained. The exit scheme benefited 20,000 non-CBCS VTU students.

The bench had earlier passed an interim order directing the colleges to consider the applications of the students who are eligible under the one-time exit scheme

Some students with the help of Chetan, an engineering student had forged the court order dated September 28, 2017 and manipulated it by adding names and changed the date to October 28, 2017 to enable them to seek registration in colleges.

A copy of the forged order was circulated to a group to students, some of whom were the original petitioners. One of the petitioners filed a complaint with the registrar about the forgery along with the documents.

The bench called for an explanation from the students who committed the forgery and, the respondents.
