On Thursday, the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) began investigation into Delhi government’s alleged medicine scam raised by Mishra. Searches were carried out at four places after ACB registered preliminary enquiry in the case.
Mishra had on Tuesday sought Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal’s “direct intervention” in the city’s health department over the alleged scam in purchase of medicines by the AAP government. Mishra has been alleging irregularities in purchase of medicines and in payment to suppliers.
Mishra had accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Health Minister Satyendar Jain of misappropriating health funds and claimed three health scams, including one involving Rs 300 crore.
The Kejriwal government improperly procured medicines, overpaid for ambulances, and violated rules in transfers and appointments too, Mishra had said.
