New Delhi, June 22: A court here on Monday dismissed the bail application of Delhi’s former law minister Jitender Singh Tomar in the fake degree case, saying that allegations against him were serious in ture as he is a legislator. Dismissing the plea, Additiol Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Tarun Yogesh extended his judicial custody till July 6. Tomar has sought bail on the ground that he has to attend Delhi’s assembly sessions commencing from Tuesday. The court, while refusing bail to Tomar, said it considered “the gravity of allegation against him as a public representative being an elected MLA, who is accused for using alleged false document for getting enrolled as an advocate”.
Delhi Police opposed the bail plea, with Public Prosecutor Atul Shrivastava contending that he is an influential person and might tamper with the evidence in the case if he will released. (IANS)
