HC notice to Nadda on Plea seeking Probe into AIIMS graft

Delhi HCThe Delhi High Court Wednesday issued notice to the health ministry, Health Minister J.P. Nadda and AIIMS on a plea seeking a CBI inquiry into various cases of irregularities and corruption in the hospital raised by then anti-graft officer Sanjiv Chaturvedi.

A division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice R.S Endlaw also issued notice to the Central Vigilance Commission and Sanjiv Chaturvedi and asked them to file their response by April 22.

A PIL filed by NGO Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) through advocate Prashant Bhushan, also a member of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), has sought a revival of all cases in which action was initiated by Chaturvedi before he was removed by then union health minister Harsh Vardhan in August last year from his post as chief vigilance officer of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
