Delhi Law minister Jitender Singh Tomar was today arrested in connection with fake degree row.

Tomar has been arrested by Delhi Police  for his interrogation in this case.

An FIR against Tomar was registered in Hauz Khas Police Station under IPC 420,467,468 and 120 B.

Tomar had approached the Delhi High Court to stay the proceedings of the Bar Council of Delhi (BCD) initiated against him in an alleged "fake law degree" case.

Two cases were pending against Tomar in the Delhi High Court, alleging that he had enrolled himself as an advocate on the basis of a "fake and bogus" graduation degree while the other plea sought cancellation of his election.

Bihar's Tilak Manjhi Bhagalpur University, from where Tomar claimed to have obtained his law degree, had earlier told the court that the provisional certificate is not "genuine" and the document "does not exist in the university's record".

The serial number of the provisional certificate in the record showed the name of some other person and not that of Tomar, said the university.

The BCD had also initiated an inquiry into the matter and issued notice to Tomar seeking his response.
