Kumar Vishwas demands SC-monitored probe into Vyapam scam

AAP leader Kumar Vishwas has approached the Supreme Court demanding a probe into the Vyapam scam, which has witnessed mysterious deaths over the last few days.

The poet-turned-lawyer said despite the Madhya Pradesh High Court monitoring the probe, mysterious deaths continue to occur.

“We have prayed to the Supreme Court for a monitored probe. Despite the probe by the Special Task Force, which is being monitored by the Madhya Pradesh High Court, deaths continue to take place. It has come to light that in the case of one arrested person...his family has alleged that the STF itself asked for Rs. 7 lakh to drop his name from the case,” he said.

Mr. Vishwas added that the STF comprises officers from the Madhya Pradesh government and in such circumstances, it is not possible to have a fair probe.

He also attacked the Madhya Pradesh government on the grounds that despite many deaths, the state was not willing to get the probe done by the CBI.

Journalist Akshay Singh investigating the scam and Arun Sharma, Dean of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Medical College, Jabalpur, died a mysterious death on Saturday and Sunday.
