Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh government has dropped hints on going for a fresh probe into the Vyapam scam, involving corruptions in admissions in different medical colleges in the state and irregularities in recruitment in various departments.

The move comes barely a day after the economic offence wing (EOW) of the MP police filed an FIR against “unknown bureaucrats and politicians” in the Rs 3,000 crore e-tendering scandal involving tempering of software to benefit some private players in awarding government tenders during the previous Shivraj Singh Chouhan government.

 

“I have met the CM demanding a fresh probe into the Vyapam scam. The chief minister hinted at initiating process to begin an investigation into it afresh,” one of the whistleblowers of the scandal said here on Thursday.

A special task force (STF) was set up in 2015 to probe the scandal during the previous Shivraj rule. Later, the CBI took over the probe from STF.

The CBI has already filed chargesheets in the case.

The CBI had also given clean chit to former BJP minister Laxmikant Sharma and 10 others in a case under the Vyapam scam relating to irregularities in recruitments in state transport department.

Around 3,000 people, including several influential politicians, bureaucrats and businessmen, were booked by the STF under the scam.

 

Sources said the state government may order probe into 1,200 complaints made to the STF in connection with the scam.

In another development, the EOW sleuths raided several software companies here on Thursday in connection with the e-tendering scam.
