INDORE: Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials today interrogated Jagdish Sagar, an accused in Vyapam scam, and reportedly managed to get more information about his 'ill-gotten' property which was allegedly amassed through his involvement in the Vyapam scam, a top ED official said.

Sagar, who was arrested in connection with 2013 Vyapam scam, was brought from Bhopal jail amidst tight security to the ED's sub-zonal office, where sleuths quizzed him for four hours, the ED official said. "We have received information about some properties owned by him. We suspect that he amassed this property through the black money he had minted in the Vyapam scam," the ED official said.

Earlier, the ED had grilled Sagar on August 26 last year after it attached his movable and immovable properties worth Rs 3.34 crore, the ED official said. Besides Sagar, ED has investigated Vyapam's former examination controller Pankaj Trivedi and nine others under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

According to the MP police, Sagar, who had allegedly colluded with Trivedi, had allegedly taken huge bribes from many students to admitting them fraudulently to government medical colleges across Madhya Pradesh.
