New Delhi: A whistleblower in the Vyapam scam, Ashish Chaturvedi, on Thursday hoped that the Supreme Court will order a thorough investigation in the case under its supervision, adding that such a verdict will bring relief to the common man.
"The Supreme Court will hear the petition on Vyapam scam today. I hope that the court orders that the investigation in this case will take place under its supervision by a Central agency so that the truth comes out.
