The Congress party on Tuesday said that powerful people were involved in the rising number of deaths of persons associated with the Vyapam scam and demanded that the Supreme Court must look into the matter.
“We are all very concerned about it and are going to the Supreme Court now,” Congress leader Digvijay Singh said.
“This is the biggest scam ever and some powerful people are involved in it. I believe the Supreme Court should look into the matter,” he added.
As per reports, 42 people, including the accused and the witnesses in this case, have died.
The Vyapam Scam involved the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board, which holds exams for positions like medical officers, constables, teachers and auditors for government departments.
Candidates allegedly bribed government officials to ensure that they made it to the list of those who cleared the test.
