A case was registered after the Sampurna Nand Sanskrit University denied that Balkrishna was ever on their rolls.

Rajnish Shukla, registrar, Sampurna Nand Sanskrit University said the number mentioned by Balkrishna in his degree did not match the university records and the enrolment numbers as mentioned by the documents belong to some other student.
