MUZAFFARPUR: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), probing the Vyavasayik Pariksha Mandal (Vyapam) scam in Madhya Pradesh, has handed over a list of 54 suspects to the principal of Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital (SKMCH), Muzaffarpur, urging him to verify if they were bonafide students of his institution.

The premier investigating agency has found these students guilty of impersonation and irregularities in the entrance examination conducted by the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) or Vyapam for admission to undergraduate medical courses in Madhya Pradesh.

SKMCH principal Vikas Kumar confirmed having received a letter from CBI deputy superintendent of police RK Das, but refused to divulge details.

“The CBI has asked the college administration to verify the credentials of suspects, apart from giving their details like their name, permanent address, etc,” said sources.

The CBI had earlier sent to the SKMCH principal a list of 114 medicos allegedly involved in the scam, involving politicians, senior officials and businessmen in Madhya Pradesh.

Vyapam is a statutory body of the MP government and conducts entrance examinations for technical institutions in the state.

Considered one of India’s biggest scandals, the Vyapam scam shot to nationwide notoriety in 2015 after a string of mysterious deaths of witnesses and suspects.
