The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) today filed its charge sheet against 592 persons, including four former officials associated with the infamous Vyapam scam, involving a massive admission and recruitment racket in Madhya Pradesh.
The four former Vyapam officials named in the CBI charge sheet are, Nitin Mohindra (the then Sr Systems Analyst), Pankaj Trivedi (the then director of Vyapam), Ajay Kumar Sen (the then Deputy Systems Analyst) and CK Mishra (the then programmer).
Last month, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was given a clean chit by the CBI in the scam, forcing the Congress to call the agency 'Compromised Bureau of Investigation'.
The other names in the CBI charge sheet are Ajay Goenka, chairman of the Chirayu Medical College, SN Vijaywargiya of the People's Medical College, Suresh Singh Bhadauria from the Medical College in Bhopal, and JN Chowkse of the LN Medical College.
The multi-crore scam in Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal (Vyapam) or Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board broke out in 2013 when it was found that candidates had bribed the officials to let their proxies sit and write the exam in their stead. The investigation was later handed over to the CBI after Supreme Court passed the order and the case was handed over on 9th July 2015.
