Bhopal: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday carried out searches at five locations, including the premises of a private medical college in Bhopal, in connection with its probe in the Vyapam recruitment and admission scam and recovered cash and “incriminating” documents.

The agency seized incriminating documents, cash, jewellery and other assets worth about Rs 2crore after the searches at the Chirayu Medical College in the Bairagarh area in Bhopal 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 college in 2011.

The case, which was first registered at the Jhansi road police station, accuses a student of MBBS course of PMT-2010 of a Gwalior college, in conspiracy with others, of appearing in Pre-Medical Test (PMT) 2011 again and during counselling getting allotment of a government quota seat in the medical college in Bhopal.

Later on, with the connivance of the private college authorities, he allegedly vacated the seat on the last day of admission schedule after getting huge amount of money so that the 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.

There were 63 government quota seats in the private college, which were to be filled through PMT examinations conducted by the state government in 2011. Out of 63 seats, 47 were vacated on the last day of the admission, which were later allegedly filled by the college management itself.
