Corruption enquires are pending against 106 doctors of the Delhi government, according to a vigilance status report released by the Health and Family Department, on Wednesday.

The list has, however, triggered a row as some names that were there in the previous list are missing.

"As I compare the two lists, I can clearly give names of the doctors who have been accused of such cases in the past, FIRs are registered against their names, but the names have been removed from the new list," said a doctor, whose name is on the list.

The confidential report came out after DNA reported that five chief secretaries had been taking protection money as a bribe to shield the corrupt from departments. The list, however, does not have some of the names which were there in an earlier status report released in December, last year.

"I am directed to enclose herewith a list having details of vigilance status in respect of new cases and revised status in some old cases containing 106 names. Besides this, action taken report, as requested vide this Directorate's letter is still awaited despite reminders," said an internal note of the department.

The revised list has 106 names of doctors and ex-cadres, with all kinds of corruption cases against them, including procurement of medical equipment at exorbitant rates, favoring a particular private company to give tenders or other financial irregularities. The list released on December 29, 2017, had 102 names, but some of them listed in the older list have been omitted from the new list.

The action came to limelight after DNA highlighted the complaint sent to the President of India, the Prime Minister's Office , the Central Vigilance Commission and the Central Bureau of Investigation, against five chief secretaries for taking bribes as protection money from the corrupt officials, by a whistleblower working in a Delhi government hospital.

Kumar's complaint letter lists all the files and memorandum numbers where enquiries were needed but the documents were either trashed or the investigation reports are pending. He has even listed over 49 cases referred by the Central Vigilance Commission to chief vigilance officers in the Delhi government that are pending.
