UP health scam: CBI conducts massive search operation

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Saturday conducted searches at 27 places across 12 cities in Uttar Pradesh in connection with the multi-crore-rupee National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) scam.

While CBI sleuths swooped on 25 places in Lucknow alone, five raids were carried out in Varanasi, Meerut, Ballia and Bahraich Friday.

With eight FIRs having already been lodged in what is described as a Rs.8,000 crore scam, the total number of criminal cases registered so far has reached 12.
