New Delhi: A day after holding a meet with Special Investigation Team and its Special Task Force officials, the CBI on Wednesday registered two cases in its ongoing probe in the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh.

The CBI registered two First Information Reports (FIRs). The first has been registered against 21 candidates who participated in the 2010 Pre-Medical Test (PMT) exam while the second names eight accused in the 2011 Pre PG exam.

The accused have been booked on charges of criminal conspiracy, punishment for cheating by impersonation, cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property, forgery of valuable security, forgery for purpose of cheating, using as genuine a forged document and knowing it to be forged and intending to use it as genuine.

A 40-member CBI team reached Bhopal on Monday following the Supreme Court’s order to take over the investigation from the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Madhya Pradesh police.

According to CBI sources, police teams from Gwalior, Indore and Jabalpur were probing various matters related to the scam.

The STF, set up by the SIT, and police teams handed over many documents related to the probe to the central agency, sources said.

The Gwalior-Chambal region of the state is where most of the 45 deaths related to the Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal (Vyapam) or the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB), have occurred over the past few years.

The CBI is also planning to set up a separate office in Bhopal exclusively to probe the Vyapam scam.
