VyapamScam
Bhopal:
The CBI team probing the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday met officials of the SIT and the Special Task Force (STF) and discussed the probe and the deaths related to the scandal.

A 40-member Central Bureau of Investigation team reached Bhopal on Monday following the Supreme Court’s order to take over the investigation from the Special Investigation Team of the state police.

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

The STF 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, 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. (IANS)
