The CBI has handed over DVDs, instead of hard copies, of its chargesheet to 491 accused in the case related to the Madhya Pradesh Pre-Medical Test (PMT) 2013, a part of the Vyapam admission and recruitment scam.
“We have handed over chargesheets in DVDs, each containing around 39,500 pages, including enclosures, to the accused or their advocates in the special CBI court,” special prosecutor Satish Dinkar said on Thursday.
The CBI filed the chargesheet in the court on October 31, 2017, but the judge asked the agency to provide a copy to every accused.
If hard copies were to be distributed to the accused, it would have needed a truck for delivery, Mr. Dinkar said.
The Vyapam scam came to light in 2011. It is alleged that touts, in connivance with officials, helped students crack the professional course entrance tests using experts who wrote the tests instead of the students.
