Indore: The Central Bureau of Investigation probing the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh on Thursday submitted a closure report in connection with Namrata Damor’s death, considering it a “suicide”, sources said.
A CBI source said the agency filed the closure report in Damor’s death case before a Special CBI court here. He said the CBI has considered Damor’s death as a suicide in its closure report.
The CBI had taken over the probe from the state Special Investigation Team in December 2015 on the Supreme Court orders, dated July 9, 2015, and September 11, 2015.
The Vyapam scam refers to irregularities in exams held by the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) for admission in professional courses and state services over several years. The scam-hit national headlines in 2013.
Damor, a 19-year-old medical student, was found dead on train tracks in Ujjain district of Madhya Pradesh on January 7, 2012.
Three years later, a Delhi-based TV journalist visited Damor’s home to investigate her death. However, while talking to her father, Singh complained of uneasiness and died within hours. It was journalist’s mysterious death at the Damor residence in Meghnagar, a town in the state’s Jhabua district, on July 5, 2015, that led to her case being reopened. (IANS)
