Bhopal: The CPI-M on Sunday offered security for the four whistle-blowers in Madhya Pradesh`s Vyapam scam, being now probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation following the Supreme Court`s directive.
In a statement here, the Communist Party of India-Marxist`s (CPI-M) state secretary Badal Saroj said Ashish Chaturvedi, a whistle-blower from Gwalior, was threatened by Bharatiya Janata Party leader Hari Singh Yadav.
A police complaint has also been filed about the threat.
Pointing to the threat to Chaturvedi`s life, Saroj said his party wanted to provide security to Chaturvedi. He said the same offer stands for three other whistle-blowers -- Anand Roy, Paras Sakhlecha and Prabhat Pandey.
