NEW DELHI/ BHOPAL: A 40-member team of the CBI will reach Bhopal on Monday to take over the probe into the recruitment scam in the Madhya Pradesh Vyavsayik Pareeksha Mandal (Vyapam) and the over 40 deaths linked to it, officials said on Sunday.

A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) official said in New Delhi that the team will reach Bhopal in accordance with the directions of the Supreme Court.

"In compliance with the orders of the Supreme Court, the CBI has constituted a team of around 40 members to take over the investigation of all Vyapam-related cases. The CBI team will reach Bhopal on Monday and begin the process of taking over the investigation," the official said.

The apex court had recently handed over to the CBI the investigation into criminal cases related to the Vyapam scam and the deaths linked to it.

Sources said the Special Task Force (STF), which was earlier looking into the Vyapam scam, will submit to the CBI around 10 tonnes -- or two truckloads -- of documents related to the case.

Around 2,100 people have been arrested in the Vyapam scam, and at least 491 accused are absconding.
