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 is 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 Metropolitan Magistrate concerned when he is produced after the expiry of police custody."

The court then allowed the plea of Tomar. Meanwhile, public prosecutor Tarunvir Singh Khehar submitted his letter of appointment before the court in compliance with its earlier order.

A Magisterial Court had yesterday extended by four more days the police custody of Tomar after investigators said he needs to be taken to Bundelkhand University to ascertain facts about his allegedly 'fabricated' migration certificate.

On June 11, the Sessions Court had deferred the hearing on bail plea for today, saying the matter required objective consideration of records. It had refused to grant him interim bail saying it would further 'complicate' the matter.
