Vyapam scam: Police to reopen MBBS student death case

Namrata's case has come back in focus after the sudden death of TV journalist Akshay Singh in Jhabua district's Meghnagar town recently after he interviewed Namrata's father.

Ujjain District's Superintendent of Police Manohar Singh Varma today said, "We have ordered a review of the death of Namrata Damor. Sub Divisional Officer of Police (SDOP), Tarana, RK Sharma will reopen the case."

Namrata's body was found under mysterious conditions near the railway tracks on January 7, 2012. Earlier, the police had registered a 'murder' case in this regard and later termed the incident as an 'accident' and closed the case, a police official said.

Namrata was studying at the Government MGM Medical College in Indore and it was suspected that she took admission with the help of the racket involved in the high-profile Vyapam scam that is said to have claimed 45 lives.

Buckling under pressure, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had yesterday made a U-turn and decided to seek an investigation into the murky Vyapam scam by CBI on a day the Supreme Court agreed to hear petitions in this regard.

Following Chouhan's announcement at a press conference, the state government moved the Madhya Pradesh High Court seeking its direction for institution of a CBI probe into the massive admission and recruitment scam.
