Earlier, the district magistrate had ordered a probe into incidents of uterus removal in the district.

Most of the uteruses were removed to claim the insurance money under the Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojna, a central government scheme, an official said.

Early this month, the Bihar State Human Rights Commission issued notice to private hospitals and nursing homes.

The official said the commission has taken serious note of the issue and told the hospitals and nursing homes to reply to the notice soon.

A state legislature committee, which is probing the removal of uteruses of over 16,000 women living below poverty line, will start meeting the victims from September.

The committee has directed district magistrates to provide it detailed information about the private hospitals and nursing homes and the list of victims.

Opposition leaders have demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation probe into the issue.
