BJP MLA from Ayodhya's Gosaiganj gets 5 years in jail in 28-year-old fake mark sheet case
Indra Pratap Tiwari, BJP MLA from Gosaiganj in Ayodhya, was on Monday sentenced to five years imprisonment by a special court in a 28-year-old case of using a fake mark sheet to get admission in college.
The court also slapped a fine of Rs 8,000 on him.
According to the FIR, Tiwari, who failed in the second year of graduation, took admission in the next class by submitting a fake mark sheet in 1990.
The charge sheet was filed after 13 years in the case. Several original documents disappeared from the records and the trial continued with the preparation of secondary copies of all the court documents.
The plaintiff, Tripathi, also died during the trial.
Mahendra Kumar Agrawal, the then Dean of Saket College, and other witnesses testified against Tiwari.
