After a series of mysterious deaths and war of words between the Madhya Prades state government and the opposition regarding the Vyapam Scam, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh today filed a petition in Supreme Court seeking CBI investigation into the scam which has claimed 44 lives so far.
Earlier, Digvijay Singh had slammed Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and accused him trying to cover up the Vyapam scam.
“More than 41 people who were accused (in Vyapam scam) have died mysteriously but unfortunately MP CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan is trying to cover up. We are fighting the battle in the court,” he said.
The Vyapam Scam involved the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board, which holds exams for positions like medical officers, constables, teachers and auditors for government departments. Candidates allegedly bribed government officials to ensure that they made it to the list of those who cleared the test.
