A Madhya Pradesh police constable, who found hanging on Monday in mysterious circumstances in his official residence in Tikamgarh district of Madhya Pradesh., was earlier questioned by a team probing the Vyapam scam.

Constable Ramakant Sharma committed suicide at his official residence in Orchcha police station. Police registered a case of suicide and started an investigation.

40-year-old Pandey was alone at home. His wife and children had gone to their village in Datia district.

He was recruited in 2000. Following a 2012 recruitment test for constables conducted by the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB), three constables selected from Tikamgarh were interrogated by the Special Task Force (STF) that is investigating the Vyapam scam.

Panda too was quizzed on his alleged role as a mediator in the deal, officials said.
