Notices bearing fake signatures from the respective registrars of two of West Bengal’s top universities have surfaced on social media asking students from all departments to find their “love ones” on Valentine’s Day.
The bogus notices – one with the logo of Jadavpur University and the other with that of Visva Bharati – also said entry of deer would be banned on February 14.
JU Registrar Snehamanju Basu said separate complaints were lodged at Jadavpur Police Station and Kolkata Police Cyber Cell on behalf of the university on Friday.
“Someone circulated a false notice to slander Jadavpur University. It’s sad. We hope the police find the troublemaker soon,” a university official said.
The university posted a notice on its official website, asking every stakeholder to ignore the fake notice.
Visva-Bharati authorities were not available for comment. ”It is a deliberate act of mischief to tarnish the name of Central University. Such attempts will never succeed… We demand that the culprits be tracked down and punished,” a Visva Bharati faculty member said.
