Ashish Chaturvedi is one of the several whistleblowers of the Vyapam Scam of Madhya Pradesh. He has said that he has received threats from the people involved in the scandal and has demanded proper security.
He exposed the scam in 2010 and since then there have been 14 attempts to kill or kidnap him. he had filed a petition in the Supreme Court in the Dental and Medical Admission Test scam. On his demands for adequate security, he was provided a new cycle and a personal security officer that follows him around on another cycle. Due to this the security office is not able to protect him properly.
The whistle-blower said his PSO had recently overheard a conversation at a food joint where someone said if he (Chaturvedi) appears in the court as a witness against the accused, they will “cut him to pieces”. Despite raising many concerns regarding his security, no step has been taken by the officials.
Many people who were accused or witnesses of the scam have died so far.
