FIR ordered against Digvijay Singh, Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia for submitting false evidence in Vyapam

A Bhopal court has directed police to FIR against in Congress leaders Kamal Nath, Digvijay Singh, Jyotiraditya Scindia and whistleblower Prashant Pandey in the Vyapam scam case. A district court in Bhopal issued this order to Shyamala Hills police station in Bhopal, on the accusation of submitting false evidence in High Court and Supreme Court. The police have to file the FIR by October 4 and submit a detail report by November 13.

The court order has come as a complaint filed by BJP law cell under several sections of IPC including 420, 466 and 468. The complaint alleges that the Congress leaders have misled the court by submitting forged documents before Madhya Pradesh High Court. The petition also alleges that the Congress leaders are trying to mislead the court and manipulate the investigation into the scam.

“Hearing our pleas and going through the evidence, the court was of the view that it was a cognizable offence and ordered an FIR against the Congress leaders and whistleblower Prashant Pandey under Sections 464, 468, 470, 471, 474 and 120 B of IPC,” the petitioner Santosh Sharma said. Sharma is an advocate and head of BJP’s law cell in the state.

This petition has come as a counter-petition filed by Digvijay Singh against several BJP leaders last week. On 19 September, Digvijay Singh had filed the petition accusing that MP Chief Minister Shivraj Sing Chauhan is at the root of the Vyapam Scam. He had also submitted around 27,000 pages of documents related to Scam along with the petition. Senior lawyer Kapil Sibal had represented Singh in the court.

The Congress leaders had alleged that a hard disk related to the case was tampered with. Sibal said that CM’s name appeared 48 times in the disk, which was removed by police. Sibal claimed he had sent the data to Truth Lab in Bengaluru and they had found that data was tampered with.

But, Forensic Science Laboratory in Hyderabad had concluded that disk was not tampered with, and Shivraj Singh Chouhan was already given a clean shit by Supreme Court two years ago in the matter based on the FSL. Therefore, BJP alleges that Congress is misleading the court by again saying that disk tampered when SC has already accepted the FSL report that disk was genuine.
