The CBI has arrested chairman of Bhopal-based LN Medical College J N Chouksey in connection with a Vyapam related case pertaining to Madhya Pradesh Pre-Medical Test-2012.
The agency had filed a supplementary charge sheet in the case on November 23, 2017 in a special court in Bhopal. In its charge sheet, the CBI alleged that L.N. Medical College conspired with Chouksey and other co-accused and provided wrong information to the Director of Medical Education (DME) in Bhopal regarding the admission of a co-accused candidate whereas he was already a student of MBBS 2011 batch in Patna. The medical college had reported to DME about only five vacant seats for the second round of counseling whereas more than 40 seats were vacant. “It was further alleged that the medical college took more than 40 admissions on September 30, 2012 when the process of counseling was already over. The college, in connivance with DME officials, forwarded the list of admitted students to DME, which was different from the allotment list of DME,” a CBI official said.
The court had issued non-bailable arrest warrants against the absconding charge-sheeted persons. In pursuance of such arrest warrants, the CBI arrested the accused.
Chouksey, whose application for anticipatory bail was rejected by Supreme Court on March 6, was on the run after being charge-sheeted, was arrested on Wednesday from his house here. He was produced before a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court here which sent him to judicial custody till Saturday.
