The Patiala House Court on Tuesday dismissed a petition seeking summoning Union Minister Smriti Irani in the fake degree case. The court further said that the plea was filed to harass the cabinet minister.

The Metropolitan Magistrate Harvinder Singh had reserved its order for Tuesday after the Election Commission filed the documents in a sealed cover relating to Irani’s educational qualification submitted by her for contesting the 2004 general elections.

Irani had given information about her educational qualifications in affidavits to the Election Commission to contest various elections.

In June last year, a case was filed by freelance writer Ahmer Khan, who accused Irani of providing contradictory affidavits about her educational qualifications during different elections.

Following the court’s direction, Delhi University had also submitted that the documents pertaining to Irani’s BA course in 1996, mentioned by her in an affidavit filed during 2004 Lok Sabha elections, were yet to be found.

However, while filing affidavit in her Rajya Sabha nomination papers from Gujarat in 2011, she said her highest educational qualification was B.com, Part 1 (correspondence course) from Delhi University.
