Fake degree row: Jitender Singh Tomar’s bail rejected, in custody till June 16




There is apparently no relief in sight for some time, for Jitender Singh Tomar , the former Delhi Law minister of the AAP government . A Delhi court has now deferred hearing on the bail application of former Delhi law minister Jitender Singh Tomar, accused in alleged fake degree case, till June 16.

The court rejected Tomar’s request for interim bail, saying it will further “complicate” the matter given the present circumstances.  Additional Sessions Judge, Sanjeev Jain, deferred the bail hearing after observing that the investigating officer of the case, is out of Delhi with the accused and the progress report along with the documents related to the case are not available to the court.

The court has directed the investigating officer to appear in person. A magistrate sentenced Tomar to four-day police custody following his arrest in the alleged fake law degree case. The court also rejected his bail application. Delhi Police had  arrested Tomar  and slapped a case of cheating, forgery and conspiracy against him.

Police also told the court that the investigation in the case was in its initial stages and the documents pertaining to the law degree obtained by Tomar were “fake”.

Meanwhile, while expressing his views on Twitter, Ashutosh, the AAP spokesperson, said: “We know fight Against corruption not easy. Empire will fight back. Accusations, conspiracies, torture, jail ,accident, intimidation, threat will pounce.” (Sic)
