One of the main accused in the pre-medical test (PMT) scam, which is part of the larger Professional Examination Board (PEB) scam, Dr Jagdish Sagar was questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials on Tuesday.
Sagar, who has been booked under Money Laundering Act, was questioned for over seven hours by the ED officials. He was brought from Bhopal in a bus and from there in an autorickshaw to the ED office in handcuffs at around 12.30pm.
Sources said that for the first two hours, Sagar did not reveal much and kept on denying his involvement and also his investments. But when he was confronted with documentary evidence about his involvement, he became more cooperative and gave vital information to the officials. Sources said that Sagar accepted his role in the scam, that he took money from the students and rigged the examinations with the help of PEB officials.
On Wednesday, the ED officials are going to question Sri Aurobindo Institute of Medical Sciences (SAIMS) general manager Pradeep Raghuvangshi and the following day they are going to tackle SAIMS CMD Vinod Bhandari.
