BHOPAL: Former president of the Bhopal unit of Confederation of Real Estate Developers' Associations of India (CREDAI) and Vyapam scam suspect Vipin Goel recently submitted CCTV footage of his residential premises before the Supreme Court claiming that no cash was seized by the special task force (STF) on the date as shown on record. 

STF had shown seizure of Rs 12 lakh from his house in their report before a local court before investigations were taken over by the CBI. 

Besides the footage, Goel, through his counsel, also mentioned he has been implicated in the case by a director of a private medical college who was close to a key investigator of MPSTF. These submissions were made along with his bail plea that was rejected on Thursday. 

Goel, in jail for the last several months, had raised questions on the credibility of STF investigations into the multi-crore admission scam. He alleged he was implicated by the agency under the influence of Dr Ajay Goenka, managing director of Chirayu Health and Medicare Private Limited over an old rivalry. 

Goel had also approached the high court claiming there were over 600 calls between STF's DSP DS Baghel and Dr Goenka even though the latter was under the agency's scanner in PMT-2012 scam. Baghel is an investigator in PMT-2012 scam in which Goenka's role is being probed. 

STF admitted before the court that there were frequent calls between DSP Baghel and Dr Goenka, but it was a doctor-patient relationship as his mother, wife and around 12 other family members were under his treatment. 

Goel's counsel argued it was very unlikely for Goenka to speak to the DSP 30 times a day and the collusion should be probed.
