Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi ruled out Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s demand to order a CBI probe into medicine scam saying the state agency is competent to probe the matter.

"There is no question of ordering CBI inquiry into the issue,” Manjhi said on Monday.

The state agency is looking into irregularities in purchase of medicines of nearly Rs 25 crore by a corporation for supply in government hospitals and its report is expected to come soon, he said.

"After submission of report if it comes that something is left out and has not been taken notice of we will see at that time," he said.

The BJP has been demanding CBI inquiry into irregularities in purchase of medicine by a newly carved medical corporation during the period when former CM Nitish Kumar was in charge of Health department after BJP left the Cabinet.
