Fake degree: Ex-Delhi minister appears before Saket Court

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

Former minister Jitender Singh Tomar along with all other accused appeared before the Saket today in pursuance to the summons issued against them in connection with the fake degree case.

Earlier in the day, the copy of chargesheet was provided to them by the investigating officer.

The matter will be next heard on May 17.

Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University, Bihar, had 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 the 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 IPC Sections 420, 467, 468, 471 and 120B for criminal conspiracy, cheating and forgery.
