Congress for SC-monitored CBI probe into Vyapam scam

New Delhi, July 6 (IANS) Accusing Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan of “misleading” the investigation into the Vyapam scam, the Congress on Monday demanded a Supreme Court-monitored CBI probe.

“Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had on Sunday demanded a neutral investigation in the Vyapam deaths, including that of a journalist. Is Chauhan refusing to listen to his own government?” Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala asked here.

“Does the reluctance of the chief minister reflect his jitteriness and an attempt to stifle the truth and divert the investigation?” he added.

Demanding a Supreme Court-monitored CBI probe into the scam, he said the Jabalpur bench of the Madhya Pradesh High Court had said that members of the Special Investigation Team probing the scam faced threats to their own lives.

The scam is related to irregularities in recruitment conducted by Vyavsayik Pareeksha Mandal (Vyapam). Many people associated with the scam have lost their lives, including a TV journalist who was covering it.

Surjewala said: “Chauhan is misleading the nation and telling a lie. He is again hoodwinking the nation.

“Why was the chief minister not able to stop this sinister scam between 2009 and 2013?”
