Lucknow: The Allahabad High Court on Friday fixed August 29 as the next date of hearing on a PIL seeking direction for a CBI probe in alleged NRHM scam in Uttar Pradesh.

A Lucknow bench comprising justices Pradeepkant and Ritu Raj Awasthi fixed the hearing for Monday on the PIL filed by a local scribe.

The state government had said that since CAG was already conducting a special audit on the request of the government, a CBI probe at this stage was not appropriate.

The counsel or the Centre has already submitted that it has no objections to the matter being handed over to the CBI for probe.

The petitioner had alleged ireegularities in the implementation of National Rural Health Mission in Uttar Pradesh and sought a CBI probe into the scam.
