BHOPAL : Though the Madhya Pradesh Government has not officially sought CBI probe into the Vyapam scam but the CBI has already made a backdoor entry into the probe. Union Minister Uma Bharati, it may be recalled, had said that Vyapam scam has ‘inter-state’ links.
First, Home minister Babulal Gaur announced CBI probe into the mysterious death of Jabalpur based Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Medical College Dean DK Sakalle in the House during the Budget session. Dr Sakalle was found dead with serious burns at his house by his wife, when she returned after her morning walk on July 4. He was rushed to hospital where he was declared dead. When a probe is carried out into his death it will invariably include the Vyapam scam as he was enquiring into the impersonation of candidates in PMT scam at the behest of the SIT.
Secondly, CBI’s Shimla (Himachal Pradesh) unit has launched its own investigation into AIPMT admission fraud, seeking details of all MBBS pass-outs from Gwalior Medical College in 2009-2010.
Four other students of 2003 and 2004 batch are also under its scanner.
CBI’s Shimla unit has sought details on four students – Gaurav Gupta and Rahul Yadav of 2004 batch and Subham Lavania and Neha Jain of 2003 batch.
While Gaurav and Rahul passed out in 2010, Subham and Neha got their degrees in 2009. Rahul Yadav surrendered before Gwalior police’s special investigation team (SIT) after his name surfaced in MPPEB scam. Reportedly, Rahul was impersonated by a ‘scorer’ named Ram Muneer from Lucknow. Rahul Yadav is also the younger brother Dr Deepak Yadav, who is a key link in the inter-state medical examination racket. Deepak is in custody of special task force.
Gwalior Medical College Dean Dr GS Patel, talking to Free Press, said, “We have sent all the details of the four students Gaurav Gupta and Rahul Yadav of 2004 batch, Subham Lavania and Neha Jain of 2003 batch. Besides, details of students of 2010 have also been sent to CBI”. However, he refused to comment on the entry of CBI into Vypam
fraud through PMT fraud in Madhya Pradesh. Dr Patel said, “No comment on this issue”.
