SC refuses to monitor ongoing probe in Vyapam cases

New Delhi, December 15
The Supreme Court today said it won’t monitor the investigation going on in the state of Madhya Pradesh, besides 37 cases, in the multi-crore Vyapam scam cases.
The apex court bench, headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi and also comprising Justice V Ramanna, said this after hearing a plea filed by Congress leader Digvijaya Singh, who sought that all the cases related to Vyapam cases should be monitored by the apex court. Since the cases are going on in trial courts, the apex court refused to monitor the Vyapam cases.
The Vyapam scam involves the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board or Vyapam, which conducts the examination for selecting medical officers, constables, teachers and auditors for government departments, besides admission to professional colleges. The candidates reportedly paid officials and middlemen to make it to the list. Almost 50 people connected to the ongoing investigation into this multi-crore rupees scam case in the Madhya Pradesh state have died, half of whom died under mysterious circumstances.
