Vyapam scam: No need for CBI probe, says Rajnath Singh

Jhabua (Madhya Pradesh): Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday said there was no need for a CBI probe into the Vyapam scam as the SIT investigating the scandal reported to the Madhya Pradesh High Court and not the state government.

“SIT (Special Investigation Team) is probing it… the SIT is not working under the government, but under the supervision of the high court. I think things which have influenced Vyapam… the high court will take cognizance of them,” Rajnath Singh told the media while on a visit to Madhya Pradesh.

The home minister appealed to political parties not to influence the probe as it was under the high court.

“An SIT probe is on. It is a high court decision whether the CBI should probe. How can we influence the high court and the Supreme Court?” he said, adding that there was an attempt to make an issue “out of a non-issue”.

“The Madhya Pradesh chief minister has said he wanted the issue probed independently and the probe is on.

“When the high court feels that the SIT is not able to probe properly… and if given a direction, then the government is ready for a CBI probe,” he added.
