In mounting trouble for former Delhi Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar, RML Awadh University, from where he claimed to have graduated, today denied having any such record.
Stating its willingness to cooperate with the ongoing probe into the case, the university stood by its earlier stand saying Tomar’s BSc degree was a forged one.
“One Pradeep Kumar had filed an RTI asking for verification of a set of documents related to Tomar’s marksheets and degree. The university had replied on January 22 saying it had nothing of that sort in its records. We stand by our previous stand,” its media in-charge S N Shukla said.

He was replying to a question on Tomar’s B.Sc degree.
Tomar, AAP’s Tri Nagar MLA, was today brought here by police for gathering more evidence in the case. Police may also take him to Munger in Bihar and repeat the exercise there.
Tomar had claimed to have completed his LLB degree from VNSL Studies, a law college affiliated to Tilak Manjhi Bhagalpur University of Bihar.
