Vyapam scam: Ujjain Police to reopen case of MBBS student’s suspicious death

Ujjain: Police have ordered review of the suspicious death of MBBS student Namrata Damor, whose body was found near railway tracks in Ujjain district in 2012 after her name figured in the infamous Vyapam scam of Madhya Pradesh.

Namrata’s case has come back in focus after the sudden death of TV journalist Akshay Singh in Jhabua district’s Meghnagar town recently after he interviewed Namrata’s father. Ujjain District’s Superintendent of Police Manohar Singh Varma said that, “We have ordered a review of the death of Namrata Damor. Sub Divisional Officer of Police (SDOP), Tarana, R K Sharma will reopen the case.”

Namrata’s body was found under mysterious conditions near the railway tracks on January 7, 2012.

Earlier police had registered a “murder” case in this regard and later termed the incident as an “accident” and closed the case, a police official said.

Namrata was studying at the Government MGM Medical College in Indore and it was suspected that she took admission with the help of the racket involved in the high-profile Vyapam scam that is said to have claimed 45 lives.

Buckling under pressure, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had yesterday made a U-turn and decided to seek an investigation into the murky Vyapam scam by CBI on a day the Supreme Court agreed to hear petitions in this regard.

Following Chouhan’s announcement at a press conference, the state government moved the Madhya Pradesh High Court seeking its direction for institution of a CBI probe into the massive admission and recruitment scam.

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear tomorrow the plea of Congress leader Digvijay Singh and three whistle blowers seeking an apex court-monitored CBI probe into the scam.

The Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) scam, also known as the Vyapam scam, is a massive admission and recruitment racket involving several bureaucrats and politicians.
