The Chief Executive of the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh, Alison Rooney, has reassured PBT president, Dr. Kunal Saha, today that they are on timely schedule in their internal investigation to revoke Dr. Ketan Desai’s FRCS for his involvement with criminal activity (see Rooney’s email below). PBT lodged a complaint last year with the Royal College seeking to cancel Desai’s FRCS after the Medical Council of India (MCI) decided to suspend Dr. Desai’s medical license on October 9, 2010 following his arrest by the CBI for taking bribes from a private medical college on April 23, 2010.
Since Dr. Desai got free from jail “on bail”, it appears that he has got a grip over the MCI “Board of Governors” as the MCI is no longer interested to go after Dr. Desai as evident from from the meaningless Ethics Committee hearings over the last several months. PBT hopes that the Royal College will soon revoke Dr. Desai’s FRCS to send a strong message to the corrupt and negligent doctors in India. PBT will also keep close watch on the MCI and will continue to fight the evil attempts by Desai and his cronies to regain the control of healthcare in India.
