ED registers money laundering case against Kushwaha
The agency has registered the cases after going through the financial records of utilising Rs 10,000 crore funds allocated under the centrally-sponsored NRHM to UP.

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate has registered 14 separate cases under anti-money laundering laws against former UP family Welfare Minister Babu Singh Kushwaha and others in the alleged financial irregularities in the NRHM scam.

The CBI, which had registered 13 FIRs in the same case, has already filed three charge sheets after it arrested Kushwaha, who was a minister in the previous Mayawati government, in connection with its probe into this case.

In its Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR), equivalent of an FIR, the agency has named various individuals and former government officials of Uttar Pradesh including senior IAS officer and former Principal Secretary of Health Department Pradeep Shukla, former General Manager of UP Jal Nigam's PSU Construction and Design Service PK Jain, the then

Project Manager BN Srivastava, the then Resident Engineers Katar Singh, BN Ram Yadav, the then Accountant JK Singh.

The agency has registered the cases after going through the financial records of utilising Rs 10,000 crore funds allocated under the centrally-sponsored National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) to Uttar Pradesh by the Union Health Ministry.

The agency, according to sources, will probe the wealth proceeds of the allegedly siphoned off government funds for the scheme and will soon issue notices and question those arrested by the CBI in the case under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Kushwaha, however, has not been named in the CBI chargesheet and is under custody at present.

A special CBI court in Ghaziabad on Tuesday extended his judicial custody till May 1.
