Former Delhi Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar withdrew his bail plea from a sessions court in Delhi. Tomar who has been embroiled in an alleged fake degree case, stated that since he was sent to four-day police remand, he does not want to pursue the matter as of now.
Stating that it was Tomar’s right, whether to pursue the matter or not, Additional Public Prosecutor Atul Kumar Shrivastav said he has no objection to Mr Tomar’s request for withdrawing the bail plea.
Advocate Harshit Jain, appearing for Mr Tomar, said, “The accused has been granted four-day police remand so we need to withdraw the bail plea with the liberty to file a fresh plea before the concerned Metropolitan Magistrate when he is produced after the expiry of police custody.”
Earlier in his bail plea, Tomar had alleged that police arrested him in violation of the procedure prescribed under the law. The ex-Law Minister of Delhi was arrested by Delhi Police following an FIR registered on the basis of a complaint lodged by Bar Council of Delhi which alleged that Tomar had forged his documents regarding educational qualification.
