Court gives AAP MLA last chance to file reply
The Delhi high court on Monday gave the last opportunity to AAP MLA Surender Singh to submit his response to a petition filed by BJP leader Karan Singh Tanwar, alleging that the legislator has a fake graduation degree.
Joint Registrar Neera Bharihoke directed Singh, MLA from Delhi Cantt, to file his response by August 6, as a last opportunity.
On May 18, Justice Hima Kohli had sought response from the MLA on <g data-gr-id="16">Tanwar’s</g> plea that Singh had “misrepresented himself to be BA in 2012 from Sikkim University... which amounts to corrupt practice as per law.”
“It is submitted that if he was serving in NSG (Indian Army) till 2011, it is beyond comprehension that he would have graduated or undertaken and completed his alleged BA course in the year 2012,” Tanwar has said in his petition.
Tanwar based his allegation on an RTI reply received from the Sikkim University, which said it did not have any record of any student named Surender Singh.
