INDORE: A 23-year-old youth, who acted as a middleman, was today arrested in connection with the Pre-Medical Test (PMT) scam in Madhya Pradesh, a senior official said.

The arrest was made by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the scam which came to light in 2013. The scam relates to irregularities in PMT conducted by MP Professional Examination Board (MPPEB).

The racket had later led to unearthing of recruitment scam involving the Board, which also conducts entrance exams for appointment to several government jobs.
