Cong trains guns on CBI in Vyapam scam

Training its guns on the CBI after it virtually gave a clean chit to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the Vyapam case, the Congress on Wednesday said it will have to "investigate the investigator" to bring out the truth in the matter.

Terming the CBI as 'Compromised Bureau of Investigation', senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said the probe agency showed exemplary promptness in going after opposition leaders but shielded politicians from the BJP.

Sibal said the Congress would soon file a private complaint in a trial court in Madhya Pradesh in the Vyapam case and accused the CBI of tampering with the evidence to give a clean chit to Chouhan.

The CBI on Tuesday filed a charge sheet in the Vyapam case dealing with the alleged irregularities committed during the pre-medical test for 2013 that named 490 persons, including state government officials.

"If the investigator will not probe impartially we will face unimaginable consequences. We have to stand together and charge sheet the charge sheeters," Sibal said, referring to the CBI.

He said that Congress leaders will urge the court to ensure an impartial probe in the case.

Sibal said the Congress was watching very carefully the developments related to the Vyapam probe, particularly of the officers and their postings.

Rajya Sabha member Vivek Tankha said lawyers associated with the Congress will come out to the aid of the whistleblowers in the case.

Noted counsel K T S Tulsi said never in his legal career spanning 47 years had he seen a case in which 50 witnesses have died.

"This probe is a clear case of fraud. Evidence has been tampered with to protect the chief minister. Action will be taken in this case. It will take time, but the guilty will be punished," said Tulsi, who said he was an Independent member of the Upper House and did not belong to any party.
