Lucknow University has shot off a letter to as many as 34 of its former MBA students,alleged to have used fake marksheets for admission,to resubmit their documents for verification or face cancellation of their degrees.
The matter pertains to 2007 admissions to MBA (Petroleum) and MBA (Agribusiness) at LU,when 34 students allegedly got admission using fake marksheets.
After his ward could not make it to the course,father of one candidate alleged that some students had got admission using fake documents, LU registrar Capt Amitabh Prakash said.

It is now the university has warned them that their degrees will stand cancelled, said the registrar. He informed they have been given time till September 16.
