India says state law minister arrested for fake law degree

NEW DELHI — Police said they arrested the New Delhi state law minister today (June 9) for allegedly holding a fake degree in law and registering as an attorney in the Indian capital, a move strongly condemned by the minister’s party.

Jitendra Singh Tomar faces charges of cheating, criminal conspiracy and forging documents, said police spokesman Rajan Bhagat. If convicted, he could be jailed for up to seven years.

According to Mr Bhagat, Tomar said he obtained a law degree from a university in Bihar state, but police found it to be fake. The Bar Association of New Delhi registered a police complaint against Tomar today.

Several Indian politicians, including some in the governing Bharatiya Janata Party, or BJP, face similar charges.
