A court here on Saturday set March 16 as the new date of hearing in the AIIMS corruption case as the investigation officer failed to turn up for the hearing.
The case is related to corruption in purchase of disinfectants and surgical equipments at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences(AIIMS)
“Today (on Saturday), the court was to ask important questions to police over the corruption case and the investigation by them in it, but the investigation officer did not turn up due to which the new date has been given,” the advocate appearing for AIIMS told IANS.
Earlier, the court had sought an action taken report from Delhi Police following a complaint by NGO Janhit Abhiyan in the case.
In the order, the court asked the Hauz Khas police station whether any action has been taken based on the complaint and whether any investigation has been conducted into the case.
In the meanwhile, the AIIMS administration has also issued no entry notice against Rajnarayan, the main complainant in the corruption case.
