CBI has booked former Chief Medical Officer of Lucknow A K Shukla and former Deputy CMO Y S Sachan, who recently died inside Lucknow district prison under mysterious circumstances, in the multi-crore National Rural Health Mission scam.

The agency has filed two cases in the scam as it found leads which indicate that huge financial bungling was allegedly committed by the UP Health Department officials in connivance with the contractors, CBI sources said.

The CBI has alleged in the FIRs that officials in-charge of funds from the Centre under the NRHM allegedly acted hand-in-gloves with the contractors to create fraudulent reimbursement bills in the names of hiring of vehicles and medicine purchases to withdraw funds for personal gains, agency sources said.

The agency has accused the then CMO A K Shukla, Deputy CMO Sachan, District Administrative Office C J Yadav and clerk P C Verma of cheating, criminal conspiracy, forgery among other charges under Prevention of Corruption Act, they said.

The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court had on July 27 directed the CBI to probe the murders of the two CMOs and also irregularities in implementation of the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) within three months.
