Tomar brought to Bihar for fake degree probe

Patna, June 12 (IANS) Delhi’s former law minister Jitender Singh Tomar faced angry students on Friday when he was brought to Tilka Manjhi University in Bihar’s Bhagalpur district, some of them throw eggs, tomatoes at him, police said.

“Raising slogan against Tomar for defaming name of their university, angry students throw eggs, tomatoes at him and tried to attack him also but Delhi Police managed to rescue him,” said a district police official in Bhagalpur, about 200 km from here.

Early on Friday, Tomar was first brought to Bihar’s Munger district for interrogation in connection with the ongoing probe into his alleged fake law degree.

“A Delhi Police team brought arrested minister Tomar to Munger for interrogation into his fake law degree,” said a district police official in Munger, about 170 km from here.

Police said Tomar was grilled at Hotel Rajhans in Munger. “Delhi Police team have collected evidences in the case.”

During interrogation, Tomar told police that for the sake of adding ‘advocate’ before his name, he took the help of a lawyer friend and enrolled himself in the law college in Munger.

“Delhi Police team interrogated R.K. Mishra, principal of the law college in Munger in fake degree case,” the police officer said.

He was arrested last Tuesday following an investigation into a complaint by the Bar Council of Delhi that Tomar had obtained a fake law degree from the Institute of Legal Studies College in Munger.

Tomar is currently in police remand for four days.
