'Probe death of accountant'

The Uttar Pradesh government on Sunday recommended a CBI probe into the death of health department accountant Mahendra Kumar Sharma in Lakhimpur Kheri district.

"The state government has recommended the probe and a letter in this regard has been sent by the state", a senior Home Department official said. The NRHM scam in the state had turned murkier with Sharma's death, the fifth victim in the last one year after the alleged bungling of over Rs 10,000 crore of central funds surfaced.

Sharma, 52, who was reported missing since February 7 was found lying in a pool of blood with severe injuries on his head and face.
