Revealed: Multi-Crore MPPEB Scam Trail Traced To Saifai?

By Sofia Razzack | Bhopal

The Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) scam trail can be traced to Samajwadi Party (SP) supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav's ancestral village in Saifai district of Etawah district. In a revelation, a teenage prodigy and internet activist has leaked information pertaining to the exam scam in Madhya Pradesh, said reports.

This comes days after Lokayukta sleuths raided the house of former controller of examinations, Dr Pankaj Trivedi, the key accused in the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) scam.
According to sources, Nikhil Thakur leaked documents related to the MPPMT scam to Special Task Force which leads to Saifai in Uttar Pradesh's Etawah district.

The leaked documents suggest that a separate Saifai module was involved in infiltrating proxy candidates into Madhya Pradesh for money. Many toppers in MPPMT-2013 exams did not appear for the test but were represented by proxies from the Saifai module.

Seven candidates had filed their application forms mentioning a common email id - allegedly being operated by Hasmat Ali who reportedly is a medical student of UP Rural Institute of Medical Science and Research, Saifai.

Hasmat Ali (30) scored 155/200 in PMT 2013. Six others who mentioned his email-id in the online application forms also scored high marks. 

They include Alok Kumar Nath, Ashutosh Kumar, Mohammad Kalim, Manish Yadav, Jitendra Singh, Sanjay Negi and Chand Babu.

Senior medical students from Saifai would either appear as proxies or sit for the exam on regular roll numbers and get paid from two sources. 

First from client-candidates whom they would help cheat and score high marks and secondly from private medical college managements after surrendering their seats.

It is pertinent to note that the Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led Madhya Pradesh government has refrained from ordering a CBI probe into the multi-crore MPPEB scam. The state government is allegedly stonewalling the investigation into the scam, which is led by the Special task Force (STF).
