NEW DELHI: Delhi Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar was on Tuesday arrested in an alleged fake degree case and later remanded to four-day police custody by a Delhi court. He resigned shortly after that. Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodhia confirmed the fact that underfire minister has tendered his resignation. His resignation has been accepted though AAP has refused to say why Tomar resigned so late.
49-year-old Tomar was produced before Metropolitan Magistrate Navneet Budhiraja within hours of his arrest in the case. Police sought his five-day custody saying his educational certificates relating to law degree were “fabricated” and he was required to be taken to Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh and Bhagalpur in Bihar to ascertain his educational qualification.
Police told the court that the educational certificates which Tomar claims to be true were fabricated and during their initial probe, the authorities who signed those certificates have denied their genuineness. “Everything (documents) is something which either is denied by the institution or we don’t know as to how these documents came into light. For this we need Tomar’s interrogation,” the police said.
Tomar, MLA from Trinagar and a first time minister, was arrested in the morning following investigation into the complaint by BCD that he had obtained a fake law degree from the Bihar college. An FIR was registered against Tomar last night at Hauz Khas police station and he was booked for alleged offences of cheating, forgery, using forged documents as genuine, forgery with intent to cheat and criminal conspiracy. Tomar was brought to Hauz Khas police station and later shifted to Vasant Vihar Police Station.
