Eduction does not filter greed!
The Board of Governors of the Medical Council of India (MCI) has suspended the licence of tainted former MCI chief Ketan Desai, a council official said on Sunday. The MCI announced the suspension in a letter to Desai on Saturday, ending speculation surrounding his proposed visit to Canada to represent India in a World Medical Association (WMA) conference Oct 13-16. “In view of the grave and serious allegations against you having a prima facie merit, permission granted to you to practice medicine be suspended during the pendency of appeal/complaint with the Board of Governors in Supersession of Medical Council of India,” the letter from the board said. (via The Hindu : News / National : Ketan Desai’s licence suspended.)
Desai was removed from his post of MCI chief and the body was replaced by the board of governors in May after he was arrested for taking Rs.2 crore as bribe for giving recognition to a medical college in Punjab.
