Supreme Court To Hear PIL Against Ketan Desai on Monday (Feb. 18): Independent Doctors From India Join PBT With Intervention Petition

DNA (Feb. 12, 2013)

Supreme Court heard the special leave petition (SLP) filed by PBT against the “unopposed” election of disgraced ex-MCI chief, Dr. Ketan Desai to the Gujarat University (GU) Senate (see news at top).  Dr. Desai was elected to the only seat in GU Senate which is reserved for registered medical graduates despite suspension of his medical registration by the MCI following his arrest by the CBI for taking bribe from a private medical college in 2010.  After GU refused to respond the complaint lodged by PBT against the wrongful election of Dr. Desai, PBT moved Gujarat High Court seeking direction to the GU for investigation of Desai’s election to the GU Senate.  PBT moved the Apex Court after Gujarat HC dismissed the writ petition.  The Apex Court expressed concerns about the overall situation and fixed the matter for final hearing on Monday.  Two independent doctors from Delhi also filed an “intervention” application in support of PBT’s special leave petition to oppose Dr. Desai.
