Vyapam scam: Police's U-turn on Namrata case; no review ordered

No review is ordered in the case as investigation is complete and the report has been submitted. No question of any review arises," Ujjain range Inspector General of Police (IGP) V Madhu Kumar told reporters here.

"If a court or any other agency says then only a case can be reopened. Police had submitted its report only after doing complete investigation and it has no doubts over it," Kumar said.

However, earlier in the day, Ujjain District Superintendent of Police Manohar Singh Varma had said, "We have ordered a review of the death of Namrata Damor. Sub- Divisional Officer of Police, Tarana, RK Sharma will reopen the case."

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

Namrata's body was found near the railway tracks on January 7, 2012 in the district. Police first registered a murder case, but later termed it an accident and closed it.
