New Delhi/Bhopal: A 40-member team of the CBI will reach Bhopal on Monday to take over the probe into the recruitment scam in the Madhya Pradesh Vyavsayik Pareeksha Mandal (Vyapam) and the over 40 deaths linked to it, officials said on Sunday.

A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) official said in New Delhi that the team will reach Bhopal in accordance with the directions of the Supreme Court.

“In compliance with the orders of the Supreme Court, the CBI has constituted a team of around 40 members to take over the investigation of all Vyapam-related cases. The CBI team will reach Bhopal on Monday and begin the process of taking over the investigation,” the official said.

The apex court had recently handed over to the CBI the investigation into criminal cases related to the Vyapam scam and the deaths linked to it.

Sources said the Special Task Force (STF), which was earlier looking into the Vyapam scam, will submit to the CBI around 10 tonnes — or two truckloads — of documents related to the case.

Around 2,100 people have been arrested in the Vyapam scam, and at least 491 accused are absconding.

The Supreme Court on Friday asked the NGO Initiative for Inclusion Foundation (IIF) to give suggestions for effective implementation of a law to curb sexual harassment of women at workplaces, particularly in the private sector.

Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A. M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud sought the suggestions after the Central government in its affidavit claimed that it has taken steps to enforce the Protection of Women from Sexual Harassment at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013.

Appearing for the IIF, senior counsel Sanjay Parikh said there was no implementation of the law in private companies.

The court had issued a notice to all the states in the last hearing of the matter on January 4. The notice was returnable in four weeks. IANS
