SC to hear plea in Vyapam scam today

New Delhi, July 28 : The Supreme Court will today hear a plea regarding alleged irregularities in the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board, also known as the Vyapam.

A PIL has been filed for fresh probe into the matter. On 10th July, the apex court allowed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to take over cases of deaths of those associated with the case.

A special task force constituted by the Madhya Pradesh government had been probing irregularities until then.

The Central agency took over the probe into this and other cases related to the scandal last year on direction of the Supreme Court.

The scam refers to irregularities in entrance exams conducted by Vyapam for admission in professional courses and recruitment in Government jobs in Madhya Pradesh.
