NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to hear on Thursday the plea of Congress leader Digvijay Singh and three whistle-blowers seeking an apex court-monitored CBI probe into the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh. “We can fix all the matters together. It will come on July 9,” a Bench comprising Chief Justice of India(CJI) H L Dattu and Justice Arun Kumar Mishra and  Justice Amitava Roy said.

The petition of the Congress leader and the three whistle-blowers were mentioned by senior counsel Vivek Tankha and Indira Jaising. Digvijay and whistle-blowers Ashish Chaturvedi, Dr Anand Rai and Prashant Pandey have moved the apex court seeking a CBI probe under its supervision.

On Monday, a group of lawyers and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas had moved the court urging it to take cognisance of the massive scam. And the court had also scheduled these matters for hearing on Thursday. The petition sought removal of Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav on the grounds of his alleged involvement in the massive admission and recruitment scam in the state and recording of his statement in the case. In the petition, Vishwas had urged the apex court to take cognisance of the massive scam, citing that 45 people died in mysterious circumstances in connection with the case.
