Patna HC admits PIL on uterus scam

Patna,(BiharTimes): The chief justice of Patna high court, Rekha M Doshit, on Monday admitted a PIL on multi-crore uterus scam and assigned the court of Justice T Meena Kumari for its next hearing on Friday.
Filed by a Muzaffarpur-based lawyer, Sudheer Kumar Ojha, on Saturday last the writ has alleged that a sum of more than Rs 3,300 crore has been swindled through the uterus scam.

The petitioner has sought a CBI enquiry into it to unravel the truth and fix responsibility. He has argued that since 75% money involved in the matter belonged to government of India, only a central agency can find out the truth.

The PIL has made the district magistrates and civil surgeons of Samastipur, Madhubani and Muzaffarpur accused in the case. Besides it also made the principal secretaries of health and home departments of Bihar accused.

As reported earlier uterus of thousands of BPL women were allegedly removed without their consent, or necessity, by private hospitals or clinics, so as to claim health care insurance money under the Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana.
