The CBI on Sunday constituted a special team of 40 officers, under a Joint Director level officer, to probe the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh.

The team comprising officers from different branches of the probe agency will reach Bhopal on Monday to take over investigations in the scam, an official said.

The agency remained tight-lipped on the information about the officers who would be part of the team or who will head it. It also dismissed as “incorrect and baseless” the reports about a Bihar-cadre officer heading the CBI team.
