New Delhi [India], Nov. 3 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation has filed a Supplementary charge sheet against a solver, a candidate and a middleman in the Court of Special Magistrate in cases related to the Vyapam scam. CBI had registered a case last year against the said three accused persons on the orders of the Supreme Court. It was alleged that during reconciliation and matching of photograph in PCRT Examination on 30.09.2012, the invigilators at the examination centre at Gwalior found that photograph & signatures in the application form of candidate were not matching with the candidate who was appearing in the said examination conducted by Vyapam. It was revealed during the investigation that the candidate approached a middleman to arrange a solver for appearing in the PCRT Examination, 2012 on his behalf. The middleman arranged a solver who impersonated in the examination held on 30th September 2012 on behalf of the candidate. The State Police had earlier filed charge sheet against the three accused persons. During CBI investigation, forensic opinion was obtained from the CFSL regarding Fingerprint examination & handwriting which conclusively proved that the solver had allegedly impersonated candidate in the said examination fraudulently. CBI collected additional evidence and added certain sections of IPC and MPRE Act, 1937 in the supplementary charge sheet. All the three accused persons appeared before the Court at the time of filing of charge sheet on notice. The Court cancelled their earlier bail and sent them to Judicial Custody. (ANI)
