Police suspect racket behind Tomar’s ‘fake’ degree: Bassi

New Delhi, June 10 (IANS) A day after former Delhi law minister Jitender Singh Tomar was arrested in a case of an alleged forged degree, Delhi Police chief B.S. Bassi on Wednesday said that the police would probe if it was a racket.

Finding out those behind the forgery of documents was the “most important” aspect of the case involving Tomar, Bassi told media persons here.

“Who made them (documents)? Was it done by him (Tomar) or were these procured?” the police officer asked.

Bassi pointed out that if the documents were procured, it was important to identify the persons behind it.

“Since when was the racket functioning? Who else, besides Tomar, was provided such documents?” he said.

Bassi said that earlier experience indicated that those involved in such rackets provide forged documents to many people.

Police would seek to identify all those involved, and also persons who were given such documents.

The police commissioner said that such malpractices damaged the educational system and police would reach to the bottom of the matter.

Tomar, arrested by Delhi Police on Tuesday, is currently in four-day police remand. He resigned after his arrest.
