Tomar admits forgery after a week of being in custody

By NewsGram Staff Writer

After a week of getting arrested for submitting fake academic records, Former Delhi Law Minister, Jitender Singh Tomar finally confessed to his act of forgery. He admitted that he had bought the degrees from two agents.

According to an English newspaper, during the questioning, he was forced to reveal that he had procured his B.Sc. and LLB degrees from two different agents in Delhi and Munger respectively. His LLB degree was drawn from Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University, Bihar with the help of an agent named, Vinod while his B.Sc degree was hauled in the year 2001 from Awadh University, UP with the help of Madan.delhi-law-minister-jitender-singh-tomar-should-be-sacked-congress

In addition, Tomar also revealed that he was introduced to Vinod by his brother PS Tomar, who was a practising advocate. Also, Madan, who runs a private school in Shakarpur, was Tomar’s neighbour. In his defence, he further said that he did this only to be socially accepted. Being active in politics, he wanted to develop a career in politics for which he needed the degrees, according to a report in Hindustan Times.

Subsequently, Tomar’s remand has been extended by four days and he will now be interrogated on the network of agents he approached to buy the degrees. Police said, he will be questioned about the fake migration certificate too and a proper investigation will be conducted in the matter. They believe that extending Tomar’s days in custody will give them proper opportunity to probe further into the case.
