DU cannot find Irani's BA documents
The Delhi University today told a court in the capital city, that the BA documents pertaining to Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani, mentioned by her in an affidavit filed during 2004 Lok Sabha elections, are yet to be found."Documents related to her (Irani) BA are yet to be found," O P Tanwar, the Assistant Registrar of School of Open Learning, Delhi University (DU), told Metropolitan Magistrate Harvinder Singh.
Tanwar also brought some documents related to Irani's education, including admission form for B.Com (H) of 1993-94, its result and her enrolment/admission form in BA (H) Political Science first year for 2013-14.
He said that Irani's class 12th documents, submitted with the admission form of B.Com (H) course were yet to be found. However, he added that "verification must have been done before the admission."
The court further asked the SDM of north Delhi to bring documents filed by Irani along with the affidavit for contesting 2004 polls from Chandni Chowk constituency. Further hearing on the issue will be on June 6.
Earlier the court had directed the Election Commission and DU to bring the documents related to educational qualification of Irani on a complaint filed against her for allegedly giving false information in affidavits to the poll panel.
Last year the court allowed the plea of the complainant Ahmer Khan, a freelance writer, seeking a direction to the officials of EC and DU to bring records of Irani's educational qualification after he said he was unable to place them before the court.
