Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday promised 'strict action' if the uterus of any woman out of the reported 16,000 removed under National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) was done without reason.

Kumar said he had ordered a probe in the matter and strict action would be taken against those found guilty.

A vernacular daily had recently published a report that the uteri of 16,000 women were removed in 11 districts over the past two and half years to enable them to take health insurance benefit under NRHM.
