Vyapam Scam: BJP suspends party leader Gulab Singh Kirar

The BJP has suspended Gulab Singh Kirar, a party leader from Madhya Pradesh, who is allegedly involved in Vyapam scam, according to TV reports.

Kirar was suspended on Thursday a day after CBI named him in an FIR. The agency has also registered an FIR against his son, Shakti Pratap Singh for his alleged involvement in pre-medical test scam.

Currently, Kirar is the Chairman of Sate Backward Classes Commission. He was even named by the Special Investigation Team of the Madhya Pradesh Police last year, but the party did not act against him then.
