Contrary to an earlier observation on Namrata’s death, the CBI investigating the Madhya Pradesh Vyapam scam and the deaths related to it on Friday opted to view it as a murder case, CBI sources said.

The agency filed a case under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code against unidentified people, after the case diary of Namrata’s death was handed over to the CBI on Thursday night.

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

Jhabua Police Superintendent Abid Khan told IANS the case diary on death of TV journalist Akshay Singh has been sent to the CBI.

Akshyay Singh was found dead in mysterious circumstances in Jhabua’s Meghnagar while covering the Namrata Damor death case, viewed as most sensational of all other deaths linked to the Vyapam scam.

The body of Namrata Damor, a second-year MBBS student of Indore city’s Mahatma Gandhi Medical College on January 7, 2012, was found on Shivpura-Bherupur rail track in Ujjain district, police sources said.

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

Meanwhile, the Congress party here on Friday said no court had given any clean chit to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan but the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party is falsely claiming that he has been given a ‘clean chit’ by court in the scam.

State Congress spokesperson K.K. Mishra said: “Neither the court has give Chouhan any clean chit nor termed Congress leader Digvijaya Singh and whistleblower Prashant Pandey’s excel-sheet wrong. Still, from BJP’s Nandkumar Chouhan to union minister Prakash Javadekar they are saying the chief minister has got clean chit.”

PM Modi Slammed for “Destroying” CBI: Congress on Alok Verma’s Case

The Congress on Tuesday slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the Supreme Court reinstated Alok Verma as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Director, saying he has been exposed for “destroying” the premier investigating agency.

“Modi adds another first to his list. After being the first Prime Minister to be exposed destroying the CBI before the Supreme Court, after having ruined the CVC’s (Central Vigilance Commission) credibility (requiring supervision by former SC judge), Modi has now become first Prime Minister to have his illegal orders set aside by the Supreme Court,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said in a series of tweets.

His remarks came soon after the Supreme Court judgment pronounced on a plea by Verma and NGO Common Cause challenging the government’s decision on the intervening night of October 23-24 to divest Verma of his charge as head of the investigating agency.

Reminding Modi that the government comes and goes but the integrity of the institutions survive, Surjewala hoped that the judgement would be a “lesson” to the Prime Minister about the strength of country’s democracy and the Constitution.

“Modiji please remember, governments have come and gone. Integrity of our institutions have survived. Let this be a lesson to you about the strength of our democracy and the Constitution. Let this be a lesson that howsoever despotic you may be, law catches up in the end,” he said.

Firing salvo at Prime Minister, the Congress leader said: “After making CBI Chief suffer the consequences of your illegal decision for three months, will you show the courage to return three months of lost tenure? Unless you are afraid of investigation into Rafale scam.

“Modi equals to ‘Muzzling of Democratic Institutions’. First, you lose four economic advisors in a row including two RBI Governors. Second, four Supreme Court judges go public on Judge (B.H.) Loya, then you destroy credibility and competence of the CBI and CVC. This is your model of ‘minimum governance, maximum government’,” he added.

Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi questioned the Supreme Court verdict asking what has changed now.

“Before the Supreme Court verdict; Alok Verma didn’t have powers of CBI Chief, couldn’t take any decision on policy or investigation. After Supreme Court verdict: Ditto,” Singhvi tweeted. (IANS)
