CBI plea to be heard by SC on July 20: Vyapam Scam

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear on Monday the plea of CBI that Special Investigation Team (SIT) be allowed to file charge sheets in the Vyapam scam cases in which the investigation is over.


A three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice H L Dattu, fixed the plea of the probe agency for hearing on July 20 and asked CBI to serve the copy of the applications to the party concerned.
The CBI had on Wednesday registered three FIRs and formally launched its probe in the high-profile Vyapam scam.

The Congress has alleged that an accused in the scandal extended favours to Union minister Dharmendra Pradhan and other BJP and RSS leaders, a charge denied by them.

The CBI team, which has been camping in Bhopal for the last two days, registered three cases in connection with the massive rigging of examinations for recruitment in government jobs and admissions in educational institutions, naming among others a member of Madhya Pradesh Backward Classes and Minorities Commission member and his son.

The premier investigating agency also launched a probe into the “mysterious” deaths of five persons associated with the scam.
