AAP Mohalla Clinics Case: After LG Recommendation, Home Ministry Gives Nod to CBI to Probe Matter
After Delhi Lt Governor recommended a CBI probe into 'fake lab tests' at Delhi's mohalla clinics, the Home Ministry gave its nod to the CBI to probe the matter.
NEW DELHI: Days after Delhi Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena recommended a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the alleged fake lab tests and 'ghost patients' at Delhi's Mohalla Clinics, the Union Ministry of Home Affairs on Friday gave its nod to the CBI to go ahead with the probe into the matter.
Meanwhile, Delhi Health Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj welcomed the CBI probe into supply of substandard drugs in Delhi government hospitals, news agency PTI reported.
Earlier this week, Lt. Governor VK Saxena had recommended a CBI probe into alleged fake lab tests and 'ghost patients' at Delhi's Mohalla Clinics.
The development came days after Saxena ordered a CBI probe into the alleged supply of drugs to the Delhi government hospitals that had failed "quality standard tests".
At the time, Bharadwaj – on his part – had clarified that "the AAP government had last year de-empanelled several doctors and staffers at Mohalla clinics for wrongdoings, and also demanded the sacking of the health secretary over multiple issues.
Saxena had reportedly made adverse comments against the successive health ministers and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on the file pertaining to the matter.
