The Enforcement Directorate has attached properties worth Rs. 200 crore in connection with the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) scam case.
The agency attached the properties in Lucknow and Delhi. The properties were reportedly linked to former Uttar Pradesh minister and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader Babu Singh Kushwaha.
One of the properties that were attached by the Enforcement Directorate is in Karol Bagh area of the national capital. This comes after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said that it would soon be examining former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati in connection with the alleged swindling of funds in the implementation of centrally funded NRHM.
CBI sources said BSP supremo Mayawati who was at the helm of affairs in UP during 2007-12 during which NRHM misappropriation is alleged, will be called for questioning in connection with the case.
