The chairman of Madhya Pradesh High Court Bar Association, Adarsh Munni Trivedi, who had in the past represented petitioners seeking a CBI probe in the Vyapam scam, on Wednesday could not appear before the High Court here as he took ill and his family suspected an attempt at food poisoning.

He was going to appear in another PIL plea about rigged admissions to private medical colleges. “My father fell sick in the early hours on Tuesday after consuming mangode [a fried snack made of lentil and gram] that someone had placed on the table in his office,” said Ashish, his elder son.
