ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

The Saket in will today continue to hear Jitender Singh Tomar fake degree case.

Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University, Bihar, in March this year, cancelled the LLB degree of Jitender Singh Tomar in connection with the fake degree case levelled against him.

The case garnered attention in 2015 when High issued a notice to Tomar on a plea filed by (BJP) leader Nand Kishore Garg, demanding the cancellation of the (AAP) leader's ticket for submitting fake certificates.

The university from where Tomar claimed to have obtained his degree had earlier stated that the record of his provisional certificate did not exist in their record.

Following a complaint, an FIR was lodged against him under Sections 420, 467, 468, 471 and 120B for criminal conspiracy, cheating and forgery.
