Press Note Regarding Ms. Richa Singh’s Allegations in The Press and Public

The Facts are:

  1. Election to the various posts of Allahabad University Student’s Union was conducted in September, 2015. Mr. Rajnish Singh who lost the election alleged that election was not conducted fairly. Mr. Rajnish Singh gave a complaint to Grievance Cell of the University which is being enquired into. The Grievance Cell also accepted that the election was not conducted fairly. Thereafter Mr. Rajnish Singh went to Allahabad High Court. The matter is pending there in the High Court.
  2. A complaint was received from Mr. Neeraj Kumar Sharma son of Sri Paras Nath Sharma, M.A. (Prev.) Anthropology, University of Allahabad that the admission of Ms. Richa Singh has been done by ignoring the reservation policy. The Dean’s report was sought and the Dean admitted the fault in admission. For this also an Inquiry Committee has been constituted to look into the matter. The admission of Ms. Richa Singh is not cancelled.
  3. Ms. Richa Singh alleged that Mr. Amit Singh (O.S.D.), Vice-Chancellor’s office is a criminal with multiple charges. The matter was enquired into and the documents sought from the Court and different offices were obtained and it was proved that Amit Singh is not a criminal. Mr. Amit Singh has filed a defamation case against Ms. Richa Singh which has nothing to do with the University Administration.
