Life scheme scam: CBI orders immediate probe

life mission -

Thiruvananthapuram: The CBI probe into allegations of corruption in the Life project will be announced soon. The investigation is being launched based on the enforcement report. Enforcement documents indicate that a group of IAS officers carried out the illegal activity.

The Enforcement Department concluded that what had happened was a serious omission. The official paved the way for foreign aid to be received unknowingly by foreign ministries. The Ministry of Finance has forwarded the preliminary report of the Enforcement to the Ministry of Home Affairs. The CBI will issue an order for investigation as soon as the technical steps in the Home Ministry are completed.

The new move comes after the government yesterday ordered a vigilance probe into the Life project. Vigilance will investigate all transactions with the Red Crescent. The scope of the inquiry will also include the receipt of the commission.
