The Congress on Saturday demanded an investigation into the death of a Delhi-based television journalist who was in Madhya Pradesh to interview the parents of a girl, who was found dead near a railway track after her name figured in the Vyapam scam, saying it raises “serious concerns” and “questions.”
“The Congress Party is pained at and condoles the untimely death of Akshay Singh, the Aaj Tak/India Today reporter investigating the Vyapam Scam in Madhya Pradesh. His death, coming after more than 40 mysterious deaths of individuals associated with the Vyapam scam raises very serious concerns and questions and needs to be investigated thoroughly and impartially,” Congress communication department head Randeep Surjewala said.
Rahul reacted on Twitter saying: “Deeply anguished at the untimely death of journalist Akshay Singh who was investigating the Vyapam scam in MP. My condolences to his family.”
