New Delhi: A Delhi court on Tuesday recalled its bailable warrant against former Union Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss after he appeared before it in connection with a medical college admission scam.
The court had issued the warrant against Ramadoss for his failure to appear before it.
Ramadoss is accused of allowing a medical college to go ahead with admissions without having sufficient resources.
Besides Ramadoss, who was the Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare from May, 2004 till April, 2009 in UPA-I, CBI has filed charge sheet against K V S Rao, Director in Cabinet Secretariat, Sudershan Kumar, Section Officer of Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MHFW) and Dr J S Dhupia and Dr Dipendra Kumar Gupta of Safdarjung Hospital.
The charge sheet, filed before Special CBI Judge Talwant Singh, also named Suresh Singh Bhadoria, Chairman of Index Medical College Hospital and Research Centre (IMCHRC), Dr S K Tongia, ex-Dean of the college, Dr K K Saxena, Medical Director of the college, Nitin Gothwal and Dr Pawan Bhambani.
According to the charge sheet, Ramadoss and other accused conspired with each other in permitting IMCHRC admission for second year despite the fact that the Medical Council of India (MCI) and a committee appointed by the Supreme Court had "repeatedly recommended" that IMCHRC was not having sufficient faculty and clinical material required as per MCI norms.
