The Madhya Pradesh High Court today found out that the spreadsheet submitted as an evidence in Vyapam scam was a forged one.

The spreadsheet was furnished by Congress leader, Digvijaya Singh, who had accused Madhya Pradesh’s Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chauhan, of direct participation in the scam.

The Madhya Pradesh High Court, which is supervising the investigation into the scam that is centered on government officers allegedly taking bribes from job-seekers, found out that the excel sheets were forged.

Digvijaya Singh had also alleged that the police, instead of carrying out a fair investigation, is protecting the CM, who is now serving his third term in the state. Therefore, since 2011, the police investigation has come into scrutiny of the high court.

In February, Singh and another congress leader, Jyotiraditya Scindia , demanded for CBI to take over the case as the police had ruined or tampered the evidences in the case that clearly indicted Chauhan. They also said that an excel spreadsheet found on a computer hard-drive had been altered to delete references of the CM as one of the recommending candidates.

However, the police told the court that the document, a pen drive with a copy of spreadsheet, purveyed by person portrayed by Congress as a whistle-blower, are inauthentic.

  • Hope we will be able to see the complete unmasking of people like Digvijay Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindia who have done precious little for people when in power but are bent upon defaming performing CMs like Shivraj Singh Chauhan. Notice how J Scindia has been entirely silent on the Lalit Modi issue.

Bangladesh Nationalist Party Chairperson Khaleda Zia, convicted in a corruption case, was granted bail on Monday.

BNP leader Zia secured a four-month bail in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case in which she was handed five years of imprisonment by a Bangladesh court.

“Now, there is no legal bar to let Khaleda walk out of prison on bail,” Bangladesh Daily Star quoted BNP Advocate Sagir Hossain Leon as saying.

Earlier today, a bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Shahidul Karim passed the bail order in response to a petition moved by Khaleda before a high court back in February.

Her bail was considered on four grounds, including her health condition.

Further, the high court directed the concerned authority to prepare the paper book of the case within the next four months for hearing the appeal she filed against her conviction in the case.

The high court sentenced Zia’s eldest son and Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s (BNP) Vice-Chairman Tarique Rahman and four others for at least 10 years with a fine of 2.10 crore Bangladeshi takas (Tk).

The Anti-Corruption Commission had earlier filed a case in 2008 with Ramna Police Station, accusing six persons including Khaleda and her son Tarique.

Khaleda is a two-time Bangladesh Prime Minister, having ruled from 1991-96 and again from 2001-06.

In a political career spanning almost four decades, Khaleda went to the jail several times but was never convicted. She was detained several times during the anti-Ershad movement between the 1980s and 1990s.

In March 1983, she was made vice-chairperson of BNP after her husband and former Bangladesh President Ziaur was assassinated.

She went on to become the party’s chairperson in 1984, a position which she holds today. May 10, 1984.

Since the last three decades, Bangladeshi politics have been dominated by Zia and current Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
