PMT SCAM

By NewsGram Staff Writer

Madhya Pradesh’s special investigation team (SIT) from Indore which took the lid off the Pre-Medical Test (PMT) and seized six computer hard discs two years ago is yet to file the charge sheet in the court, the state government said on Wednesday.

State Home Minister Babulal Gaur revealed this in a written reply in the assembly to Congress legislator Jeetu Patwari’s question over the issue.

The assembly was informed the first disc was recovered on July 18, 2013, from Bhopal resident Ajay Sen.

In 2013, the crime cell of Indore police arrested a group allegedly involved in the recruitment through pre-medical test. This led to the opening of pandora’s box in the form of Vyapam recruitment and admission scam.

In August 2013 the investigation was transferred to Special Tast Force (STF). In April 2014, the state high court set up a Special Investigation Team (SIT) under former Justice Chandresh Bhushan. Under the SIT, the STF started functioning.

The case is being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation after the Supreme Court directed the chief investigative agency to take up the investigation in the case.

Sep 30, 2017: Vijayadashami or Dussehra is celebrated with fervor at the end of Navratri every year. The festival is observed by burning the puppet of King Ravana. While at some places, the celebration of good over evil is celebrated by burning effigy of the demon king, there are some places where Ravana is worshipped on this occasion. It is predisposed amongst the followers that all their wishes come true on this day.

Every year on Dussehra, the 125-year-old Dashanan temple in Shivala area of Kanpur is opened for its devotees. An idol of King Ravana is ornamented, and aarti is performed. Devotees perform religious rituals and light lamps to celebrate the festival. The temple remains closed following the burning of Ravana’s statue.

Dashanan Temple was constructed in 1890 by king Guru Prasad Shukl. The rationale behind the construction of Dashanan temple was Ravana’s adherence towards Lord Shiva.

King Ravana is worshipped at many places in India, for example: In Andhra Pradesh’s Kakinada, a huge shivalinga established by Ravana is revered along with the demon-king. Vidisha, a village in Madhya Pradesh is dedicated to King Ravana. In this village, the first wedding card invitation is sent to Ravana before the commencement of any celebration. Neither the devotees burn dummies of King Ravana, nor do they celebrate Dussehra.
