LAHORE: The Punjab University’s Hailey College of Commerce has cancelled the admission of three students belonging to Sindh for not being eligible to apply and submitting fake academic certificates.

Eight students of various areas of Sindh had secured admissions for the Fall-2021 semester in BS disciplines of the Punjab University. However, admissions of Kashif Hussain, Babar Hussain and Aamir Ali were cancelled.

A notification of cancellation of the admission states that the admission of three students has been cancelled on the basis of incorrect and incomplete information they have provided in their admission forms.

PU Registrar Dr Khalid Khan said the students had provided fake credentials in their admission forms and the administration cancelled their registration in bachelor classes.

PU admin claims that students submitted fake documents

He said Nov 8 was the last date for submission of forms for admissions at the Punjab University and the students who received their intermediate results were eligible to apply but these three students had filled the admission form with fake marks and submitted these.

He said the students got admissions on the basis of fake entries of their educational credentials and the officials launched an investigation and found that the Sindh Intermediate and Secondary Education Board had announced the results of intermediate classes after Nov 20.

He said these students were not eligible to apply for admissions and also gave fake academic credentials.

Mr Khan said those who got admissions had submitted results of last year (2020) and they were eligible to apply and also got admissions.

He said the three students were not eligible to apply as their result was awaiting and another reason for cancelling admissions was providing fake credentials.

“We could launch a criminal case for providing fake credentials,” he concluded.
