The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES NATION - TIMES NEWS NET­WORK

Bhopal: CBI which reg­is­tered 29 FIRs in Vya­pam case till Satur­day, has ze­roed in on Ra­jiv Gandhi Tech­ni­cal Univer­sity (RGTV) cam­pus in search of links left un­ex­plored by the spe­cial task force. This fol­lowed in­puts that a per­son who al­legedly me­di­ated be­tween scam sus­pects — Gover­nor Ram Naresh Ya­dav, min­ing baron Sud­hir Sharma and Vya­pam’s exam con­troller Pankaj Trivedi — is hold­ing a key po­si­tion in the univer­sity.

CBI’s first FIR in the scam names RGTU’s for­mer exam con­troller Sud­hir Bhado­ria, who is now di­rec­tor of RGTUaf­fil­i­ated SGSITS Col­lege, In­dore. Speak­ing to TOI, an of­fi­cer said, “Who in­tro­duced Pankaj Trivedi to gover­nor and why? The gover­nor had no of­fi­cial busi­ness with the board, so links have to be probed to get to the root of the scam.” While CBI of­fi­cials re­fused to com­ment, in­sid­ers say the agency has come across doc­u­ments from the STF, in­clud­ing a copy of Sud­hir Sharma’s mem­o­ran­dum which men­tions the name of Pankaj Trivedi’s el­der brother— Piyush, RGTU’s vice-chan­cel­lor.
