NEW DELHI: Following the major controversy over the Vyapam scam, the Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear a petition demanding the removal of the Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav because of his alleged involvement in the scam.

Accused in the Vyapam scam, son of Ram Naresh Yadav, Shailesh Yadav was found dead at his father’s residence in Lucknow on March 25.

Earlier in the day today, 25-year-old woman trainee sub-inspector, Anamika Sikarwar who got into the police through an exam conducted by Vyapam was found dead in a lake in Sagar. Resident of Morena district, Sikarwar was selected as sub-inspector in an exam conducted by Vyapam.

However, according to the reports, her selection has no association with Vyapam scam and was not a suspected beneficiary and suspected to be the case of suicide, even though there was no suicide found in her room in the academy.

Congress links her death to Vypam Scam

Grabbing upon the opportunity, Congress General Secretary, Digvijaya Singh referred the death of Sikarwar at the Jawaharlal Nehru Police Academy in Sagar, Madhya Pradesh as another casualty in the Vyapam scam.

He shared his views on his Twitter wall.

The admission and recruitment racket in Vyapam (or the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board) reportedly includes politicians, officials and businessmen and over 40 people associated with the scam have died since 2013.
