NEW DELHI: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court (SC) regarding the Vyapam investigations and sought three more weeks to take handover of all cases.

Also, the CBI sought three weeks to engage special CBI prosecutors in these cases and requested the SC to allow Madhya Pradesh Government’s public prosecutors to continue until then, so that the routine hearings of the cases don’t get affected.

As per the CBI, 212 cases of the Vyapam cases are identified till now, out of which 119 cases are yet to be investigated and charge sheets are to be filed.
