Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said, "Tomar has sent his resignation to the Chief Minister a while back. And the Chief Minister has accepted the resignation. It will be sent to the Lt Governor tomorrow morning."      

''After today's events, Tomar has sent the resignation on his own,'' he added.

Tomar said he quit "on grounds of morality. But I will fight this case through and win. After this, I will work for the party." He charged that the Central government led by BJP was "behind this conspiracy."

An Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader, requesting anonymity, said the process of finding a replacement for Tomar would be set in motion soon. However, the immediate priority is to move a higher court on the matter.
