Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Sunday said he would not recommend a CBI probe into the Madhya Pradesh Vyavsayik Pareeksha Mandal (Vyapam) scandal.

“My government is not above the judiciary. When the high court has refused a CBI enquiry into the matter, how can we order it?” the chief minister said.

He said a Special Investigation Team (SIT) is probing the scam under the supervision of the Madhya Pradesh High Court and if the court feels it should be investigated by any other agency, it is free to do that.

“Supreme court and high court are free to get the matter probed by the agency they want to. We don’t have any problem.”

The chief minister said no other matters in the country have been investigated the way Vyapam scam has till date been.
