CBI sniffs multi-crore medicine scam at Tata Hospital dispensary

A medicine scam estimated to run into several crores of rupees has surfaced in the country’s largest cancer specialty hospital here. On Friday, the Anti-Corruption Branch of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) registered a case against some staff members of the Tata Memorial Hospital (TMH) dispensary on allegations of misappropriation of medicines.

“Based on information, we have registered a case against six persons who worked at the dispensary and pharmacy of the Tata Memorial Hospital on charges of allegedly misappropriating medicines that were purportedly issued to patients. Since 7 am on Friday, our teams have been conducting raids at the dispensary office of the hospital and the residences of these six persons,” said Rishi Raj Singh, joint director, CBI.

A case under the Indian Penal Code and the Prevention of Corruption Act has been registered against the hospital’s assistant medical superintendent Dr Rekha Batura, officer in-charge of the dispensary Y B Dixit, pharmacists P B Dhake, Namita Deshpande and Leena Nakhare and department clerk Chetna Pawar . The ACB officials, however, said that investigation is likely to unearth the involvement of six to seven senior officials from the hospital. “The scam is suspected to be running since the past three-four years. And as we have learnt that the TMH dispensary has a yearly turnover of around Rs 80.5 crore, we expect that the misappropriation would also run into several crores,” said Singh.
