One of the accused in the Vyapam scam allegedly committed suicide at his residence in Madhya Pradesh’s Morena district on Wednesday. He has been identified as Praveen Yadav.
The scam is related to alleged irregularities and corrupt practices in entrance tests organised by the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board, also known as Vyapam board. In 2015, some people linked to the scam died under mysterious circumstances. The Congress accused the government of indulging in a cover up, a charge refuted by the Shivraj Singh Chauhan administration.
The Supreme Court had transferred all the investigations connected to the Vyapam scam from the Special Investigation Team(SIT) and the Special Task Force (STF) to the CBI.
More details are awaited.
