Another Vyapam Death!

A 35-year-old Vyapam accused, Praveen Yadav, was found dead at his home in MP's Morena, a day before he was to appear before a CBI special court in Jabalpur. He was found hanging in his house around 7 pm. No suicide note was found.

About 44 people related to the MP board scam have either purportedly committed suicide or died in mysterious circumstances over the last decade. Many of them are from Morena. Yadav, who lived in Morena's Maharajapur area, was a student of the 2008 batch at Jabalpur Medical College. His admission was scrapped after his name surfaced in the scam. Yadav was booked by the MP STF in 2012. He is survived by his wife and two children.

Family members said he was under depression for the past five years. Yadav, who once dreamed of being a doctor, was earning his livelihood at an oil mill. Sources said he was worried about his court hearing in Jabalpur on Thursday. CBI has expedited investigations into the scam after the SC ordered on Friday that the chargesheet be filed by October in the trial court, along with the CFSL report on electronic evidence collected during the Vyapam investigation.

The intelligence wing of MP police had conducted a parallel investigation into 40 Vyapam-related deaths before the case was handed over to CBI. CBI has not found anything different so far.
