Corruption Case Against Dr. Ketan Desai Is Adjourned To 23rd February, 2017

According to the information obtained from the special bench (Prevention of Corruption Act) in the CBI Patiala House Court in New Delhi for hearing of the criminal case for alleged bribery and corruption against disgraced ex-MCI president, Dr. Ketan Desai, the case was adjourned today (February 6) to 23rd February, 2017 for next hearing for “consideration of renewal of passport” (see court Order below). This historic criminal case against Dr. Desai started almost 7 years ago after Desai (then sitting MCI president) was caught red-handed by the CBI in a sting operation in April, 2010 for taking a bribe of Rs. 2 crore from a private medical college allegedly in exchange of granting MCI recognition to start new MBBS course. After staying in jail for six months, Desai was released on bail in October, 2010. As the case has languished in the Indian judicial system, Desai managed to promote himself to the prestigious post of World Medical Association (WMA) president last year through blatant lies by several senior MCI and IMA members that all criminal charges against Dr. Desai have been dropped by the Indian authority evan as his medical registration remains suspended by the MCI.

      Dunno about the pygmy blue tongues, St Furious – I wouldn’t recognise one. I had a spiny devil sunning herself on a fence post a couple of years ago, though.I reckon the euros spotted the only decent-sized bit of scrub in about a million acres of wheat’n’sheep, and thought, “Yep. That’ll do nicely.” Part of the reason I had it planted in the first place was to attract and shelter native animals (also a wood lot), and I’m pleased that it’s been so su;secsful.Burra&#8217cs only about 30 km up the road, btw.

    Ketan Desai is a corrupted doctor still Government of India is not taking any action on him. Every time Supreme Court is changing the time of hearing. Thanks to PBT for their patience. PBT must win as I am very confident. That day is not too far.
