The First Information Report (FIR) was registered against 38 people related to allegations of illegalities committed in the Madhya Pradesh Junior Food Supplies Officer and Inspector vis-a-vis weights and measurements recruitment examination conducted by Vyapam in 2012.

The Central Bureau Of Investigation (CBI) registered the FIR under charges of cheating, criminal conspiracy, IT Act, Prevention of Corruption Act and the Madhya Pradesh Recognised Examination Act.

“The then controller of examinations (Vyapam) Pankaj Trivedi, then OSD to the minister for technical education Om Prakash Shukla, then Raj Bhavan officer on special duty (OSD) Dhanraj Yadav and then system analyst Nitin Mohindra have been named in the FIR,” said a CBI official.

The CBI earlier registered 14 FIRs and launched seven preliminary inquiries into the Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal (Vyapam) scam.

The Supreme Court on July 9 handed over the Vyapam cases to the central agency for investigation.

More than 40 people linked with the scam have died under mysterious circumstances.

7th of December 1949, the Armed Force Flag Day

Since the 7th of December 1949, the Armed Forces Flag Day has been observed in India, annually. This one day is dedicated towards collection of funds from the citizens of India for the welfare of the ‘Indian Armed Forces personnel’. It has become a tradition to pay respect to the people who have served in the army, Navy and Airforce, on this day.

“The idea behind observing a Flag Day was to distribute small flags to the general population and in return collect donations.” The color-scheme of the flag is very similar to the ones used by fellow Commonwealth members like Cyprus, Kenya and Nigeria. The Flag Day signifies that it is the responsibility of the citizens of India to take care of the families and dependents of the armed forces personnel who fight for the country.
