Medical Council of India (MCI) president Ketan Desai, arrested on corruption charges, was further interrogated Friday, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said. “Investigations are on, but we can’t provide further details,” CBI spokesman Harsh Bahl told IANS.
Desai was arrested along with two others, Jitendar Pal Singh and Kanwaljit Singh, Thursday night for allegedly taking a bribe of Rs.2 crore to grant recognition to a medical college in Punjab. The MCI’s main function is to establish uniform standards of higher qualifications in medicine and recognition of medical qualifications in India and abroad. The council also recommends recognition and de-recognition of medical qualifications of medical institutions of India or foreign countries.
