'Only 5 per cent scams exposed so far'

Digital forensic expert Prashant Pandey, who has been given security after a Delhi High Court judgement on Friday, said he fears for his life from "high and mighty" in Madhya Pradesh government and police against whom he claimed to have got proof of their involvement.

"It is only 5 per cent of entire scam which has been exposed. The scam is much bigger," Pandey told PTI.

Pandey, who hails from Indore, is living in the national capital along with his family as he fears threat to life from strong people in power in that state.

"I still fear some thing may happen to me. I am thankful that judiciary has understood my stand and provided me with security," Pandey said.

A Madhya Pradesh High Court-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) is supervising the probe being done by the state's Special Task Force (STF) into the scam in which the role of some of the senior state government officials and politicians has come under the scanner.

The STF had yesterday registered an FIR against Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav for his alleged involvement in irregularities in recruitment of forest guards under various sections of IPC, including Sec 420 for cheating.

"There are many influential people involved in the case. I am going to expose them all. I have more information in the matter which I will be sharing with the Supreme Court or Delhi High Court," Pandey said.

"I was recommended by a senior Indian Revenue Service officer to Sudhir Kumar Sahi, Additional Director General of STF. He sought my help in the matter and I agreed. During the course of investigation we got good information against influential and powerful people of the state," he said.
