Bihar’s Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University on Monday cancelled the LLB degree of Delhi’s former law minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Jitender Singh Tomar, who was last year sacked from the government for possessing a fake law degree.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Delhi police had filed a chargesheet against Tomar before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sandeep Garg in the Saket district court. According to the chargesheet, along with attaining a fake Law degree from Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University, Tomar had also submitted a fake BSc degree, which he claimed to have received from Avadh University. It added that Tomar was “desperate for a graduation or a post graduation degree” and opted for “illegal means” by forging documents and marksheets when he did not succeed in getting one.

The Bar council of India had enrolled Tomar on the basis of a Law degree from the Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University. An FIR was lodged against him at Delhi’s Hauz Khas police station on June 8, 2015 after which he was booked  for allegedly offences of forgerym cheating, criminal conspiracy, using forged documents and forgery with intent to cheat. Following this, Delhi police arrested Tomar on June 9, 2015. He had spent a month-and-a-half in jail.

          Just go to court and prove that Modi degree is fake if you have any proof. Tomar got registered his fake LLB in Bar council to pursue law profession.

                        No sir, Tomas was removed immediately after his fake degrees case became public and Mr Kejriwal rather asked for removal of all ministers with dubious educational degrees. Will you, sir, reply to Yogesh and Kulkarmi's letters above?lt;br/gt;The law of the land should be same for all.

                          India is Hysterical:lt;br/gt;PM Modi's degree is also questioned, but no investigations on him and what more India's ex education Minister, Smriti Irani's degree is also under question, she is trying tooth and nail to stop Universities from answering RTIs about her degree. You know what our courts, even Supreme Court, and our Judges, including the CJIs never had spine to prosecute or take action against the;br/gt;Only the powerless are prosecuted.
