An advocate from Bhopal lodged a complaint against AICC general secretary and former MP chief minister Digvijaya Singh with the Special Investigating Team (SIT), alleging that Singh recommended names of candidates for admission to MBBS and Pre-PG Medical courses.
In his complaint to SIT, a copy of which is available with HT, Satish Ahelia claimed that Singh had links with director of Sri Aurobindo Medical College, Indore, Vinod Bhandari and he had recommended several names for admission to MBBS and Pre-PG medical courses. Ahelia submitted a recommendation letter along with his complaint.
The complaint was filed on Tuesday but it came to light on Wednesday. Vinod Bhandari, director of the medical college, is in jail at present in connection with the scam. He was arrested in 2014.
"There is sign of Singh on the letter I have submitted before SIT. I have all the evidences and would hand over the same to SIT if the latter seeks," said Ahelia while talking to HT over phone.
Earlier on February 25, Ahelia had also lodged a complaint against Singh, accusing him of recommending names of several candidates in MP police recruitment tests between 1996 and 2003.
Ahelia claimed that several ineligible candidates were fraudulently recruited as constables and sub-inspectors in MP police from 1996 to 2003. HT has a copy of the complaint.
Singh, however, could not be contacted despite repeated attempts. Recently, he lodged a complaint with the SIT that excel sheets recovered from an MPPEB official, Nitin Mahindra's computer, were tampered.
