Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today rubbished Aam Aadmi Party charge that the arrest of Delhi Law Minister was a conspiracy hatched in his ministry saying it had not ordered the arrest.

“The Ministry of Home Affairs does not indulge in such activities. The law takes it own course. There is no interference by the MHA in any such matter,” Singh said.

He was responding to reporters’ query on arrest of Delhi Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar on charges of cheating and fraud in obtaining law degree.

When it was pointed out that a minister in NDA government at the Centre was facing similar charges, Singh said an arrest is made on specific allegations.

The Home Minister’s remark came against the backdrop of AAP Delhi convenor Ashutosh saying that Tomar’s arrest earlier in the day was a conspiracy hatched in the Union Home Ministry on the behest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

49-year-old Tomar has been accused of cheating, forgery, forgery with purpose of cheating and criminal conspiracy under various sections of IPC.
