Patiala, September 20

Residents of Sidhuwal village held a dharna outside Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law (RGNUL) here on Monday. They demanded that the university should admit a candidate on the basis of documents, which show his/her residence at the village. The dharna and commotion continued outside university till 3 pm.

The development comes after a village resident alleged that documents of an applicant, who was given admission in the university, were fake. As such he should not have been allotted seat, he added. The applicant was allotted seat reserved for a candidate from the village.

Tarsem Singh, village sarpanch said, “The concern about fake documents of the applicant, who has been given a seat in the LLB course on the campus, was raised by one of the villagers. The university then marked an inquiry into the matter. It’s yet to take a decision in this regard. We want that another candidate from the village, whose documents are legitimate, should be allotted seat instead.”

When contacted, the University Registrar, Dr Naresh Kumar Vats, said, “The applicant has been given provisional admission subject to verification of documents. We marked an enquiry when the matter was brought into our notice. We have given student a chance to prove that his documents are legitimate by Wednesday. After this a decision will be taken regarding allocation of the seat.”

“The university will take all decisions as per validity of documents,” he added.
