Lucknow, Mar 25: The multi-crore Vyapam scam seems to be getting bigger, with sources say that the autopsy of Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav's son Shailesh Yadav confirms the presence of poisonous substance in deceased's intestine.
Even though it's not clear if consumed poison or it was administered, sources say that the report clearly rules out "natural causes" of death.
Yadav was found dead under mysterious circumstances at his father's official residence at Lucknow on Wednesday, Mar 25.
Yadav's name had figured in the multi-crore Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) scam, for allegedly fixing the recruitment of 10 candidates as Grade III teachers.
Police had said that the exact cause of the death could not be ascertained immediately. [MP Governor's son, accused in exam scam, found dead under mysterious circumstances in Lucknow]
""He was suffering from diabetes and used to sleep alone in his room. His body was found on the floor.. The exact cause of death will be ascertained only after the post-mortem examination," a senior police official said.
Home ministry had asked Shailesh's father Ram Naresh Yadav to resign after his name surfaced in the scam.
