New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has decoded the modus operandi of Dr Ketan Desai, former president of MCI (Medical Council of India) who was arrested in April 2010 for accepting a bribe of Rs 2 crore, and his tout J P Singh. Dr Desai reportedly used code words like ‘Badal’ for Punjab colleges and ‘Mamata’ for West Bengal colleges.
According to the CBI, Dr Ketan Desai entered into a conspiracy with J P Singh and Dr Sukhwinder Singh, vice chairman of Gian Sagar Educational and Charitable Trust to grant permission to Gian Sagar Medical College in Patiala for admission of students for 2010-2011 for different courses for which the college did not have the required facilities.
