CBI team reaches Bhopal to probe the Vyapam scam


Bhopal: A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team reached Bhopal on Monday to probe the Vyapam scam and met officers of the special task force (STF) probing the scam.

According to sources, CBI officers discussed the case with STF members Kamal Maurya and Rajesh Chandel. During the discussion that was held at the CBI office, some documents were also handed over to the agency’s officials.

The 40-member CBI team reached Bhopal and began investigations as per Supreme Court guidelines.

The STF was formed by the Madhya Pradesh government on August 26, 2013. Later, in April, 2014 the Madhya Pradesh High Court ordered the setting up of a special investigation team (SIT) headed by retired Madhya Pradesh judge Chandresh Bhushan to monitor the STF probe.

On July 9, the Supreme Court handed over the Vyapam case to the CBI.
