Bhopal, Aug 8: This could further add to the cup of woes of Shivraj Singh Chouhan led BJP Government which is already on the backfoot over the Vyapam scam.
Reportedly 70 people, who are currently in the Gwalior jail for their alleged role in the mysterious scam have written to President.
It has been requested that either they should be given bail or permission to die. Apart from President, the letter has also been sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
Apparently, they are peeved with the slow pace of investigation in the scam.
Earlier in the day, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) registered five fresh FIRs in connection with its ongoing probe into the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh.
A First Information Report (FIR) was registered against three accused regarding alleged illegalities in the Police Constable Recruitment Test 2012, the CBI said in a statement.
The second FIR was registered against 30 accused people regarding alleged illegalities in the Pre-Medical Test 2006 conducted by Vyapam.
The CBI registered the third case against two accused regarding alleged illegalities in the Sub Inspector Recruitment Test 2013.
The fourth FIR was registered against two accused regarding alleged illegalities in Police Constable Recruitment Test 2012.
The fifth case was against one accused regarding alleged illegalities in the Police Constable Recruitment Test 2009.
The CBI has already registered 55 FIRs and launched 11 preliminary inquiries into the Vyapam scam.
The Supreme Court on July 9 handed over the Vyapam cases to the central investigating agency. Over 40 people linked with the scam have died under mysterious circumstances or committed suicide.
