March 06, 2012 02:11 IST

Two days after former Uttar Pradesh minister Babu Singh Kushwaha was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation in the multi-crore NRHM scam, his bail petition was withdrawn on Monday from a court in Ghaziabad.

The defence counsel had filed the petition seeking bail for Kushwaha at a CBI court in Ghaziabad on Saturday when he was arrested by the CBI in connection with the case.

The CBI will now produce Kushwaha, who is on 10-day police remand, before the court on March 13.

Meanwhile, the CBI court extended to March 19 the judicial custody of former Managing Director of Uttar Pradesh Small Industry Development Corporation Abhay Kumar Vajpayee and retired Director General (Family Welfare) S P Ram in the case.
