CBI investigation recommended by Uttarakhand CM regarding medicines distribution27 Apr, 2014
Hearing an appeal under the Right to Information (RTI) Act in January 2014, the State Information Commission (SIC) of Uttarkhand had recommended a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into alleged large scale irregularities in the distribution of medicines worth over Rs 14 crore under the National Rural Health Mission (NHRM) in the state in 2008-2009. Nearly three months later, the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand Harish Rawat has now recommended a CBI probe into the NRHM scam.
Earlier, the SIC had recommended a CBI invstigation into the scam after hearing the submissions of the senior health officials who expressed their inability to go deeper into the matter due to non-cooperation of staff. The Director General (Health, Medical and Family Welfare) JS Pangtey had admitted before the SIC that the quantity of drugs to be procured was substantially increased without any basis.
