The court also asked Tomar to deposit a personal bond of Rs 50,000 and a surety of the like amount. The court had reserved the order for today after hearing arguments advanced by the counsel for Tomar and prosecutor.

During the arguments yesterday, advocate Harshit Jain, appearing for Tomar, had sought bail saying most evidences were documentary in nature and there was no question of him influencing the witnesses.

While seeking bail, Jain had said verification and analysis of documents was a lengthy process and there was no need for extending Tomar's judicial custody. Special public prosecutor Atul Srivastava had opposed the bail plea on the ground that investigation was still on and he could influence witnesses.

He contended that several documents seized from different universities where Tomar allegedly pursued his LLB and Bsc courses are yet to be verified and analysed.
