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, тАЬCBI 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.тАЭ
Talking to India Education Review, Dr Chatterjee said, тАЬToday 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.тАЭ
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 ChoudhuryтАЩs supervision.
тАЬIt is a serious question how a Ph.D can be awarded from Sikkim Manipal University under a fake PhD degree holder of Jadavpur University,тАЭ 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.
