CBI arrests Medical Council President Ketan Desai on bribery charges
New Delhi, Apr 23 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has arrested Medical Council of India (MCI) President Ketan Desai and two others for allegedly accepting a bribe.
Desai was arrested late last night after the CBI conducted searches at his office in New Delhi following information that he along with his associate Jitender Pal Singh was allegedly demanding a bribe of two crore rupees to grant recognition to a medical college in Punjab.
CBI also conducted raids in Punjab and Gujarat to trace Desai's other associates and the assets he has acquired.
Desai is accused of granting recognition to several colleges that didn't meet required criteria.
In 2001, he had stepped down as MCI president after the Delhi High Court indicted him on corruption charges. (ANI)
