"A case has been registered u/s 120B r/w 417, 419, 420, 467, 468, 471 of IPC and Section 3(d)/4 of MP Recognised Examinations Act, 1937 against eight accused persons relating to an alleged illegalities committed in the Police Constable Recruitment Test 2013 conducted by Vyapam," CBI Press Information Officer R K Gaur said.

CBI is fast-tracking taking over of cases related to Vyapam after it was pulled up by Supreme Court which had also asked it to file a report by August 24.

Allegations of rampant corruption surfaced in professional examinations conducted by Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB), also known as Vyapam, after RTI queries showed alleged involvement of top functionaries of state government offices.

Former state Education Minister Laxmikant Sharma and several top bureaucrats are currently in jail in connection with the scam.
