Removal ex #AIIMS CVO #Sanjeev Chaturvedi looks suspicious

Sanjeev Chaturvedi the former chief vigilance officer (CVO) of AIIMS had brought out corruption cases of a senior IAS officer of Himachal Pradesh who worked as a Deputy Director Administration in AIIMS.
Chaturvedi, a 2002-batch Indian Forest Service officer who has a reputation for being a whistleblower in his parent state of Haryana, was removed from his post last week by Union Health Minister Dr.Harsh Vardhan on the ground that the post chief vigilance officer (CVO) of AIIMS did not have the CVC's approval.“We were informed that without the approval of the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC), nobody can be assigned the post of a CVO anywhere… Taking cognizance we have removed him from the post,"said  Dr.Harsh Vardhan.
AAP's Arvind Kejriwal has raised the case of a lady doctor of AIIMS Dr.A.C. Ammini who was sent to inspect facilities and infrastructure of Vinayaka Missions Medical College in Karikal by the Medical Council of India, and allegedly accepted lodging, boarding and other hospitality from the inspected college, contrary to the norms.
“Sanjeev Chaturvedi recommended imposition of major penalty on the doctor. The then Health Minister reduced it to minor penalty, but Harsh Vardhan has completely exonerated her and even withdrawn her penalty.
“Harsh Vardhan went out of his way to help her because the doctor has been treating Sushma Swaraj for her diabetes for the last few years and is well known to her,” the AAP leader claimed.
