New Delhi: A court here on Friday extended the police custody of former Delhi law minister Jitender Singh Tomar for two days in the fake degree case, though the Aam Aadmi Party leader later moved a bail plea.

Delhi Police sought Tomar’s custody to confront him with Madan Pratap Chauhan, a man being interrogated in the case and some officials of the law college from where he claimed to have obtained his law degree.

Police told court that Tomar was yet to reply to various questions put to him regarding the case.

Metropolitan Magistrate Navjeet Budhiraja extended Tomar’s police custody and allowed Delhi police to quiz him till June 21, directed police not to seek his further custody.

Police arrested Tomar on June 9 and slapped a case of cheating, forgery and conspiracy against him.

They told court that a questionnaire containing over 200 questions was supplied to Tomar.

He replied to various questions but answers to some were still incomplete and his answers would help in getting to the final conclusion of the investigation, police added.

Tomar’s counsel opposed the police plea, saying there was no requirement of further police custody as police had already kept him under custody for 10 days. The case is based on documentary evidence, the counsel added.

Meanwhile, Tomar moved his bail plea in the court on Friday.

Justice Budhiraja asked Delhi Police to file reply on the bail plea and fixed the matter before the concerned magistrate on Monday.

On June 16, Tomar withdrew his bail plea from a sessions court saying he would file a fresh bail application on June 19.
