CBI has booked former CMO of Lucknow AK Shukla and former Deputy CMO YS Sachan, who recently died inside Lucknow district prison under mysterious circumstances, in the multi-crore National Rural Health Mission scam.
A day after the Allahabad High
Court order, the CBI on Friday took over the investigation into
the mysterious death of deputy chief medical officer Y S
Sachan in district jail here by registering a murder case.
The Supreme Court on Friday said it was in favour of an independent investigation into the custodial death of Lucknow deputy chief medical officer Y.S. Sachan. The court, however, adjourned the hearing till July 14.
Alleging a BSP MP and an MLC were
involved in the killing of Dr Y S Sachan, senior Congress
leader Digvijay Singh on Tuesday said the Mayawati government was
shielding the masterminds behind the murder of three CMOs.
Mulayam Singh alleged the Mayawati government got deputy chief medical officer YS Sachan killed as it feared he could name some of its ministers and officials involved in financial bunglings in the health department.
Suspended Lucknow jailor JP Srivasatava and jail doctor RC Jauhri on Friday appeared before CJM Rajesh Upadhaya for recording their statements in connection with the judicial inquiry in the death of deputy CMO YS Sachan.
