The CBI has arrested chairman of Bhopal-based LN Medical College JN Chouksey, in connection with a Vyapam related case pertaining to Madhya Pradesh Pre-Medical Test-2012, officials said in New Delhi on Thursday.

The agency had filed a supplementary chargesheet in the case on 23 November 2017 in a special court in Bhopal.

The court had issued non-bailable arrest warrants against the absconding chargesheeted persons.

"In pursuance to such arrest warrants, the CBI arrested the accused from his residence at Bhopal. The arrested accused was produced before the court and remanded to judicial custody up to 24 March 2018," CBI spokesperson said in New Delhi.

It was alleged in the chargesheet that the LN medical college, as part to the criminal conspiracy, dishonestly provided wrong information to the Director of Medical Education, Bhopal (DME) regarding the admission of a co-accused candidate who was already a student of MBBS 2011 batch in Patna.

The medical college had reported to DME that there were only five vacant seats for the second round of counselling, whereas more than 40 seats were vacant. It was further alleged that the medical college took more than 40 admissions on 30 September 2012 when the process of counselling was already over.

He said the college, in connivance with the DME officials, forwarded the list of admitted students to DME, which was different from the allotment list of the directorate.
