Bhopal, The CBI team investigating the Madhya Pradesh Vyapam scam and the deaths related to it has registered three FIRs — including one related to the mysterious death of Namrata Damor which has now been considered as a murder, sources said on Friday. vyapam

Contrary to an earlier observation on Namrata’s death, the CBI on Friday opted to consider it as a murder case and filed a case under IPC Section 302 against unidentified people, CBI sources said after the case diary of Namrata was handed over to the CBI on Thursday night.

The number of First Information Reports (FIRs) in the Vyapam scam has now reached eight.

With regard to Pre-Medical Test 2010, two incidents have been registered and 12 people have been mentioned as accused, CBI sources added.

A 40-member team under supervision of CBI Joint Director R.P. Aggarwal began probing the Vyapam scam earlier this week.

Vyapam (Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal) conducts recruitment and entrance exams not done by the Madhya Pradesh Public Service Commission.

The Vyapam scam came to light in 2013 and has since assumed mind-boggling proportions, leading to the arrest of nearly 2,100 people. At least 40 people linked in some way to the scam have also died.
