Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kiran Bedi on Tuesday said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government might be crying foul over the arrest of Delhi Law Minister Jitendra Tomar, but arrest was based on solid evidence.
“The arrest of the law minister has to be based on solid evidence. Since the matter has been in the news, they (police) must have collected appropriate evidence to make the arrest.The AAP will cry foul, but the police are not involved in politics. They are accountable for their investigation to the court. The court will decide what to do next. He always said that he does,” said Bedi.
Tomar was arrested by Delhi Police this morning and taken to the Hauz Khas police station in connection with the fake certificate row.
Tomar has been facing charges that the education certificates submitted by him while filing nomination for Delhi Assembly polls earlier this year were fake.
Bihar’s Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University, from where Tomar claimed to have obtained his law degree, had earlier stated that the record of his provisional certificate did not exist in the university’s record.
