Advocate Sarthak Chaturvedi has accused the MP of filing a false affidavit about his educational qualifications, as reported by TOI.

Reportedly, the complainant in the case, Sarthak Chaturvedi, alleged that Abhishek had declared himself as a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the Indian Institute of Planning and Management in 2009.

Chaturvedi has claimed that the declaration was false because the MBA course of "IIPM is not a degree and is not recognized by UGC or any other authority in India", reported The Indian Express.
