NEW DELHI: AAP leader and former Delhi Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar withdrew his bail plea on Tuesday in an alleged fake degree case, saying since he had been sent to four-day police remand, he did not want to pursue the matter as of now.
Additional Sessions Judge Vimal Kumar Yadav, while accepting the contention of Tomar’s lawyer, asked the Delhi Police counsel to respond.
Additional Public Prosecutor Atul Kumar Shrivastav said he has no objection to Tomar’s request for withdrawing the bail plea, as it was his right whether to pursue the matter or not.
Advocate Harshit Jain, appearing for Tomar, said, “The accused has been granted four-day police remand, so we need to withdraw the bail plea with the liberty to file a fresh plea before the concerned Metropolitan Magistrate when he is produced after the expiry of police custody.”
Tomar, an MLA from Trinagar, was arrested by Delhi Police for allegedly forging documents.
