ABVP leader Baisoya had resigned as President of Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) on November 14 this year, after the University received a report that his bachelor’s degree from Thiruvalluvar University was fake.

On the last date, Delhi University had told the court that since the verification of the degree was completed after November 13, no fresh elections can be held as the two month period within which the polls could have been conducted again had expired.
