The Vyapam scam was an entrance examination, admission and recruitment scam in Madhya Pradesh that came into light five years ago. It involved 13 exams conducted for selecting medical students and state government employees, in which the final results were reportedly rigged.
In July this year, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a charge sheet in the Vyapam case of Madhya Pradesh and charged alleged mastermind Dr Jagdish Sagar and others under the anti-money laundering law.
The chargesheet was filed under Section 45 of Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 and consists of 2,505 pages.
