Taking the Vyapam scam probe forward, CBI on Thursday carried out searches at nearly 40 places in Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh including the premises of alleged mastermind Jagdish Sagar and Dhanraj Yadav, a former OSD to Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav.
The office of MP Professional Examination Board is also being searched by the CBI team. The agency has registered over 105 cases in connection with various aspects of Vyapam scam.
The Supreme Court has directed CBI to take over all Vyapam scam matters irrespective of their present status.
Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar, appearing for CBI, had said there were difficulties in taking over 72 cases, which were at different stages of trial, as they were being prosecuted by SIT/STF and their investigation officers may not extend cooperation to the CBI.
