NEW DELHI: The CBI investigating case against Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev key aide Balakrishna is looking for a retired principal of a Sanskrit college based in Uttar Pradesh (UP) for allegedly supplying fake educational certificates which had helped him in obtaining an Indian passport.

Investigation had revealed that Balakrishna’s four educational degrees-- Poorv Madhma (High School), Madhma (Intermediate), Shastri (Graduate) and Acharya (Post Graduate)

bear signature of a same person, i.e., Naresh Chand Dwivedi.

Dwivedi is ex-principal of the Radhakrishan Sanskrit College, Khurja, in Bulandshar district of Uttar Pradesh.

The college is affiliated with the Sampoornand Sanskrit University, Varanasi. However, the agency’s scrutiny of the university’s records reveals that no student in the name of Balakrishna was  enrolled in given time period.

He had reportedly used Acharya (Master in Arts- MA) degree to obtain passport in 1996 from Bareilly, UP.

The CBI alleges that Balkrishna is a Nepalese citizen but managed to get an Indian passport on the

basis of his educational certificates. He, however, maintain to be an Indian citizen.
