40 member CBI team to probe Vyapam scam today

New Delhi, July 13: The CBI yesterday constituted a special team of 40 officers, under a Joint Director level officer, to probe the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh.

The team comprising officers from different branches of the probe agency will reach Bhopal on Monday to take over investigations in the scam, an official said.

The agency remained tight-lipped on the information about the officers who would be part of the team or who will head it. It also dismissed as "incorrect and baseless" the reports about a Bihar-cadre officer heading the CBI team.

"In compliance to the orders of the Honourable Supreme Court of India, CBI has constituted a team to take over the investigation of all Vyapam related cases. CBI Press Information Officer R K Gaur said.

A bench headed by Chief Justice of India H L Dattu, on July 9, had transferred the probe of all cases related to Vyapam scam to the CBI from Monday asking the investigating agency to file its report before it on July 24.
