Sushabhan Choudhury, Dean and Professor at Department of
Electronics and Communication Engineering of North Eastern Hill University is
in trouble over an alleged fake PhD certificate.
According to Dr Sudip Chatterjee, Ex General Secretary (FET)
of Students Union of Jadavpur University, “CBI Shillong has already started the
investigation and it has been emphasized that Executive Council of Jadavpur
University should file official complain to Jadavpur Police Station and that
FIR to be intimated to CBI Shillong urgently.”
Talking to India Education Review, Dr Chatterjee said,
“Today we met the Vice Chancellor and the Registrar of Jadavpur University over
the issue and they have assured us that they are soon going to file an FIR
against Sushabhan Choudhury.”
As per allegations, Dr Choudhury has manipulated his PhD on
the letterhead of Dr B Karmakar, Principal Secretary, Jadavpur University.
Reportedly, he has been using this fake PhD certificate since 2006.
India Education Review contacted Dr B Karmakar, who said
that he did not award the PhD to Dr Choudhury, but confirmed that his
letterhead was used.
Sudip Chatterjee said that till March 2010, Sushabhan
Choudhury was professor at Sikkim Manipal Institute of Technology (SMIT) under
Sikkim Manipal University.
He further alleges that during 2010, one PhD was awarded
from Sikkim Manipal University under Sushabhan Choudhury’s supervision.
“It is a serious question how a Ph.D can be awarded from
Sikkim Manipal University under a fake PhD degree holder of Jadavpur
University,” he said.
Chatterjee has also questioned the administration of Sikkim
Manipal University and North Eastern Hill University for allowing Sushabhan
Choudhury to use this fake PhD certificate without confirming it from Jadavpur
University till date.
