Union textile minister, Smriti Irani reportedly will not be Summoned, after Delhi court observes that a petition accusing her of a fake college degree has been filed to harass her.
Metropolitan Magistrate, Harvinder Singh said, “Complainant may not have filed it if she was not a central minister. Original evidence has already been lost due to the passage of years; secondary evidence won’t be enough for court”.
The case against Irani was filed last year by a man Caller Ahmer Khan, accusing her of making contradictory statements about her education in affidavits that she filed while contesting different elections.
Amer Khan’s lawyer told, that in 2004 Ms.Irani has said, she had 1996 bachelors of Arts degree from Delhi University, and in later elections, she said, her highest qualification was B.com, from Delhi University.
The court has asked both Delhi university and election commission to submit details of Ms. Irani’s graduation degree.
