NRHM Scam: Court Issues Warrant Against IAS Officer
send via whatsapp
A special CBI court today issued bailable warrant against senior IAS officer Pradeep Shukla after he failed to appear in the multi-crore NRHM scam case.

Special Judge S Lal issued the warrant against Shukla yesterday.

The counsel, appearing for the senior IAS officer, claimed that due to poor health his client was unable to appear before the court.

However, the court rejected his plea and fixed February 13 as the next date of hearing in the case.

The agency had filed charge sheet against Shukla last month for his alleged involvement in the irregularities in upgrading of 89 district hospitals in the state, under National Rural Health Mission scheme, causing a loss of Rs 16 crore to the exchequer.

The 55-year-old UP-cadre IAS officer, serving as member revenue board, was arrested by the agency in May but was released on bail.

After release, Shukla joined back as member of revenue board but the UP government issued orders of him being "deemed suspended".
