The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered a case against Dr Anil Kohli, former president of the Dental Council of India (DCI), for allegedly amassing assets disproportionate to his known sources of income during his tenure from April 1, 2005 to March 31, 2009.
According to the CBI, searches were conducted on Friday at six places in New Delhi in connection with the case. “During the searches, it was found that the accused has made huge investments in properties which include a palatial house at Gulmohar Park, four shops at Lajpat Nagar and a farmhouse at Chawla (near Najafgarh) all in New Delhi,” the agency has said.
Dr Anil Kohli has been the dentist of several VIPs, and was conferred the Padma Shri in 1992 and the Padma Bhushan in 2005.
The CBI acted on a complaint alleging that Dr Anil Kohli received favours from dental colleges for verification and cancellation of registrations of certain institutes during his tenure. [Source: Indian Express]
