Arvind Kejriwal likely to expel Tomar

NEW DELHI: An extremely upset Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal is likely to expel Delhi Minister Jitender Singh Tomar from his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) following the rising controversy over fake degree.

Tomar continues to be investigated in the alleged fake degree case and is scheduled to be taken to Bihar on Friday for the verification of his law degree.

Meanwhile, sources inform that the anti-corruption giant, Kejriwal is upset over the matter and is likely to expel the former Delhi law minister from the AAP. (Also Read: After Jitender Singh Tomar, another AAP MLA Surinder Singh to be questioned in fake degree row?)

According to the Delhi Police officials, they will take Tomar to Munger and Bhagalpur on Friday to proceed with further questioning in the case which investigators believe to be a part of a larger fake degree racket.

On the other hand, Munger College Principal where Tomar took his law degree from reportedly claimed that the AAP leader passed his three-year LLB exam from the institute between 1994 and 1999. He then added that if there is no official complaint, it was not possible for the university to confirm the past degrees of all applicants.

“Going by the records, someone by the name of Jitender Singh Tomar took admission here but that this Jitender Singh Tomar is the same as the politician we cannot ascertain because there is no photographic record,” he said.

Tomar was earlier taken to Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh by the Delhi Police where he got his supposed B Sc degree from Awadh University for verification.

Delhi Police department headed by Commissioner BS Bassi informed of investigating the probability of a bigger fake degree racket after this degree row.

Around 50 people in Faizabad and Munger are reported to have told Delhi Police that they boast of fake degrees.

MLA from Trinagar, Delhi, Jitender Singh Tomar, however, continues to maintain that his degrees are not fake and that he would fight the case on merit. He was remanded to four-day police custody by a Delhi Court for reportedly forging his science graduation, law mark sheets and migration certificates.

After his arrest, Tomar offered his resignation as the Delhi Law Minister.
