Tomar Row: LG Jung appoints spl public prosecutor to represent Delhi Police

1

Lt Governor Najeeb Jung has appointed a special public prosecutor to represent Delhi police in the alleged fake degree case involving former law minister and AAP leader Jitender Singh Tomar, a Delhi court was told today.

During the hearing on Tomar’s bail plea, the submissions were made before the court of Additional Sessions Judge Sanjeev Jain.

Advocate Tarunvir Singh Khehar told the court, that he was appointed as special public prosecutor in the case by the LG Najeeb Jung.

“I have been appointed as special public prosecutor in the case by the LG of Delhi to represent police in the case,” Singh informed the judge.

“I have been appointed as special public prosecutor in the case by the LG of Delhi to represent police in the case,” Singh informed the judge.

Senior advocate Ramesh Gupta, appearing for the accused (Tomar), objected to Khehar’s appearance in the case saying they neither know him nor has he filed any ‘vakalatnama’ (power to an advocate to argue/plead in the case). The court then asked Khehar to file vakalatnama and place on record the authorization letter of LG showcasing his appointment.

To this, Khehar submitted his ‘vakalatnama’ in the case and said he has the copy of authority letter of LG but sought time to file it later. Gupta later requested the court that Khehar’s statements be taken on record that he has been appointed by LG to represent police in the case.

As per reports, former Delhi Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar’s bail application was deferred. Tomar was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly faking his degrees and was sent to a four-day police custody.

The court clearly stated that it was not in a position to take a decision on the plea since it was not in possession of the relevant documents. The investigating officer and the accused are both out of Delhi.

The matter will now be heard on June 16, a day when Tomar’s four-day police custody ends.
