The CBI on Friday told a Delhi court that former Union health minister Anbumani Ramadoss,who along with others,is accused in a graft case,had illegally allowed an Indore-based medical college to proceed with the admissions without having sufficient faculty and clinical material.
It told judge Ravinder Kaur that Ramadoss,in conspiracy with the co-accused,had given approval in permitting Index Medical College Hospital and Research Centre (IMCHRC) to take admission for second year despite the fact that the Medical Council of India and a committee appointed by the Supreme Court recommended against it.
CBI prosecutor V K Sharma said IMCHRC did not have sufficient faculty and clinical material required as per MCI norms but despite that Ramadoss granted it permission to take admission for a second batch of MBBS students for academic year 2008-09.
Ramadoss illegally renewed the approval for IMCHRC, the prosecutor said,adding co-accused Suresh Singh Bhadoria,chairman of IMCHRC,was in the ministry on the day when the minister gave his approval for it.
The agency said that after MCI inspectors had clearly said that permission may not be granted to IMCHRC due to the deficiencies,a central team was constituted by the accused to obtain a favourable report for the purpose of issuing permission for renewal of admission in second year.
The prosecutor said the central inspection team was not told what they have to do and only vague instructions were given to them.
