Five Medical Students Ask President’s Permission to Die


Bhopal: As the investigation in Vyapam scam gathered steam, five Five students of Madhya Pradesh’s Gajra Raja Medical College, who had been accused in the Vyapam scam, have written to the President of India, seeking justice, or the permission to die.

They allege that though they cleared their name, they are being discriminated against by the students and teachers of the college. The students were among the 2500 accused in the scam — which involved a blatant, statewide manipulation of recruitment exams for colleges and government jobs through bribery.

In their letter, the students claimed they had cleared the PMT exam — the entrance test for medical courses — in 2010. But three years later, they were made an accused in the case after it was found that their photos and signatures in the admit card failed to match with the college identity card.

Impersonation of candidates by outsiders was one of the ploys used for cheating in the exams and the students were among 95 others who were booked on suspicion.
