Vyapam Scam: CBI carries out searches in Bhopal
The CBI on Friday carried out searches at five locations here, including the premises of a private medical college, in connection with its probe in the Vyapam recruitment and admission scam and recovered cash and “incriminating” documents.
A CBI spokesperson said the agency seized incriminating documents, cash, jewellery and other assets worth about Rs two crore after the searches at the Chirayu Medical College in the Bairagarh area here and the residences of Managing Director A Goenka and the Administrative Officer.
The latest searches pertain to alleged fraudulent allotment of MBBS seats in the said college in 2011.
“It was alleged that a student of MBBS course of PMT, 2010 in a college at Gwalior, in conspiracy with others appeared again in Pre-Medical Test (PMT) 2011 and during counselling got allotted a government quota seat in a medical college in Bhopal.
“Later on, with the connivance of said private college authorities, he allegedly vacated the seat on the last day of admission schedule after getting huge amount of money so that the said seat could be filled by the college authorities in a non-transparent manner and could be allotted to some ineligible candidate by-passing the merit list.
