Indian police say they have arrested Delhi's law minister amid allegations that his law degree is fake.
Jitender Singh Tomar, who belongs to the Aam Admi Party (AAP), faces charges of forgery and cheating if he cannot prove he attended university.
Mr Tomar has dismissed the claims as "baseless", but the university says it has no record of his attendance.
The AAP, which was elected in Delhi on a pledge to fight corruption, says the arrest politically-motivated.
"He has been arrested without any notice or prior information. What is BJP government doing?" party leader Sanjay Singh told the Times of India.
Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia told the Economic Times of India that the AAP was being targeted.
"This arrest is illegal. There is an emergency-like situation. This is supposed to be a democracy... Maybe it is an attempt to teach the AAP a lesson."
