JHABUA: The Central Forensic Sciences Laboratory (CFSL) Delhi has asked Jhabua Police to collect viscera reports of TV journalist Akshay Singh, who died under mysterious circumstances after having interviewed parents of victim Namrata Damor, whose name figured in the Vyapam scam.

Akshay suddenly fell ill and passed away in July soon after he went to Meghanagar in Jhabua district on the Vyapam scam trail and spoke to the family of Damor, who was allegedly found murdered near the railway tracks in Ujjain district in January, 2012.

"The CFSL at Rohini in Delhi has informed that it has finalised the viscera report of Akshay and asked us to send someone for collecting it," Jhabua SP Abid Khan told PTI today.

However, the SP has forwarded the letter to CBI SP at Bhopal for further action as the Vyapam case is now being investigated by the central probe agency.

The Vyapam scam, related to irregularities in admissions to medical colleges and recruitment in government jobs, turned murkier when the 38-year-old investigative journalist working for a leading Delhi-based news channel started frothing at the mouth minutes after the interview.

He was rushed to a civil hospital and later to a private hospital in MP but doctors failed to revive him. From there he was taken to another hospital in nearby Dahod in Gujarat, where he was declared brought dead.
