Gwalior medical students get no relief from CBI
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is probing the Vyapam case, on Friday refused to give any relief to students whose name allegedly figured in police record or PMT related scam.
Students,including Laxmi Dhakad, Pranav Sen and Ashish Kumar Singh, who have already cleared MBBS in 2014-15 and aspire to pursue PG (postgraduate) course, sought CBI consent through the high court bench at Gwalior.
Their names figured in criminal case no 449/13 and registered at Jhansi Road police station. The move to obtain CBI consent letter comes following pre-requisite by the Gajra Raja Medical College administration to allow them to pursue PG course.
Additional advocate general Vivek Khedkar said, “We have informed the court that consent letter by CBI cannot be given due to the ongoing investigation. Further the CBI does not approve or give consent letter which can be construed as clean-chit till the case reaches its logical end.”
Earlier SIT had booked 272 persons including above three as accused in the case. But ironically these three students were allowed to pursue studies and complete MBBS despite their names figuring in the case. They were given clean-chit of sorts and never prosecuted or deposed in court with challan, said Khedkar.
