BHOPAL (TIP) : Three hard disks seized from Nitin Mohindra’s computers – considered crucial, but controversial, evidence in the Vyapam scam investigations – has been sent for cloning to central forensic science laboratory (CIFSL) Hyderabad by CBI.
“CIFSL lab will be preparing copies and clones of three hard-disks in next few days,” CBI has said in its status report submitted before the Supreme Court on Thursday morning. Court will hear this report on Friday.
Self-styled cyber forensic expert Prashant Pandey and former chief minister Digvijay Singh had submitted in court a document that purportedly mentions “CM” against the name of as many as 48 of the 131 illegal appointees.
They claimed the document was the original excel-sheet from the computer hard disk of Nitin Mohindra, the main accused in the Vyapam, known as Vyapam scandal. The word “CM” written against candidates who benefitted from illegalities is understood to be a reference to the person who recommended them.
