Lucknow: The Yogi Adityanath government has ended a 20 year-long probe over Uttar Pradesh Health Department officials who gained jobs by fraudulent means, the Press Trust of India has reported.
As per this report, Chief Medical Officer of Mirzapur OP Tiwari has dismissed the people who got jobs in the Uttar Pradesh Health Department by fraud between 1996 and 1998. The inquiry was going on for 18 years.
In the years between 1996 and 1998, 64 people were appointed on Grade 4 posts, and had been paying them salaries since then.
An inquiry that went on for 18 years finally ended when the government ordered their dismissal last Wednesday after a report was submitted by the Economic Offence Wing, Varanasi, the chief medical officer said.
Sixty-four people who had got jobs in the Health Department through fraudulent means and fake documents have been dismissed and letters have been sent to the CMOs of the districts where they are presently posted, Tiwari said.
The issue had come to light when an audit team asked for their service books that were not provided to them, says the report.
The team got suspicious and wrote to the government for an inquiry, paving way to find the wrongful means adopted by these people.
