Lucknow: Raising its demand for the CBI probe into the murder of Chief Medical Officer(CMO) BP Singh, the state unit of Indian Medical Association (IMA) Thursday said that the "slow pace" in which inquiry into the case was going on, they doubt it could give justice.

"We demand CBI probe into the CMO BP Singh murder case as the slow pace in which the inquiry was going on presently could hardly give justice to the family of the slain doctor," State IMA president MB Saxena told reporters here.

"We strongly criticise the inefficient handling of the case," he said, adding that security of government employees should be given prime attention and priority.

In view of resignation of two ministers after taking moral responsibility of financial irregularities in their departments, Saxena said that it was insufficient to inculcate sense of security among doctors.

"We want to know the root cause of murder and only CBI could unearth it," he said.

Political parties--BJP, Congress and SP have already demanded a CBI probe into the matter.
