Chouhan offers job to Akshay Singh’s family member

New Delhi, July 9 (IANS) Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursay promised an unbiased probe into the death of journalist Akshay Singh, who was reporting on the Vyapam scam, and offered a job to a family member.

Chouhan met the dead journalist’s family here and assured them of an unbiased investigation into his death.

Besides a government job, Chouhan also offered financial help to Akshay Singh’s sister, a family member told IANS.

An official said that Chouhan offered jobs to the family members, while Akshay Singh’s family maintained that the chief minister offered a job only to the sister.

“We don’t need anything, just an unbiased probe,” the family member said.

Delhi-based Akshay Singh died mysteriously on July 4 while covering the story of the Vyapam recruitment scandal.

Chouhan said: “This family has lost everything. I assured the family of an unbiased investigation into Akshay’s death. I will do whatever to lessen their pain. I offered them jobs in the city and other help.

“It is my life’s mission to find out the truth, which is why I sent (Akshay Singh’s) viscera samples to AIIMS,” he added.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has also offered a government job to the journalist’s sister.

Chouhan had on Wednesday urged the Supreme Court to order a CBI probe into the Vyapam – the Madhya Pradesh Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal or Professional Examination Board – recruitment scam.

The apex court will hear the matter on July 9.
