Cops fail to find Tomar's 'degrees'

The Delhi Police on Wednesday took former law minister Jitender Singh Tomar to Uttar Pradesh’s Faizabad district to gather evidence over his “fake academic documents”, even as the 49-year-old leader continued to claim that the allegations were false and were part of a conspiracy by the Centre.

Sources said the Union Home Ministry has sought minute-by-minute updates from the police about “ongoing investigations, the activities and behaviour” of Tomar.

The police team, including Hauz Khas police station SHO Satinder Sangwan, is required to send updates as they happen to the south district police who, in turn, inform a special commissioner-level officer, then the inputs find their way to Delhi Police Commissioner Bhim Sain Bassi before reaching the Union Home Ministry.

“The team first took Lucknow Mail train from New Delhi railway station to Lucknow at 10:05 pm on Tuesday. After reaching Lucknow on Wednesday morning, Tomar was taken to Faizabad in Ganga Sutlej Express,” said a police officer.

They reached K S Saket PG College of Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Avadh University at 12:30 pm. Tomar claims to have a BSc degree from the college, but his degree certificates and marks cards were not found in the college or the university’s records.

The roll number mentioned in the documents was also not found. It was confirmed by the Controller of Examination and the Registrar who were questioned in front of Tomar.
