CBI questioning NIPER Scientists to probe into ‘diversion’ of funds at NIPER

The Central Bureau of Investigation has initiated a preliminary enquiry into the alleged diversion of Rs 100 crore at the Mohali-based National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research. 

The PE has been initiated on the complaint of a ‘whistle-blower’ ex-scientist of the institute who had moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court against the institute and made the CBI a respondent two years ago. 

 Sources said that Dr Parikshit Bansal, the complainant, submitted voluminous documentary evidence and also discussed the matter with CBI officials, before the PE was lodged.
