Ahmedabad: Medical Council of India President
Ketan Desai, arrested on graft charge, has been suspended from
the post of Head of Department of Urology at a government-run
medical college here, a senior official said today.

Desai has been suspended from B J Medical college as he
being a government servant has been arrested by the CBI on
charge of corruption, Principal Secretary Health Rajesh
Kishore said.

"Once the CBI provides us its report, we will be able to
decide as to what action could be taken against Desai as per
rules," he said.

When asked if the government has accepted Desai`s
resignation, Kishore said it was not accepted.

Desai had sent his resignation by post a couple of days
ago to the Dean of B J Medical College, which he had forwarded
to the state government.

Desai had initially worked as a professor at B J Medical
college and was later elevated as Head of the Department
Urology at the medical college.

The CBI had on April 22 arrested Desai and three others
in connection with a Rs two crore bribe for permitting a
medical college in Punjab to admit students despite lack of
infrastructure. Desai is currently in judicial custody.

Desai and the other accused were booked by CBI under
various provisions of Prevention of Corruption of Act,
criminal misconduct and payment of money.

Subsequent searches at various premises of Desai is
alleged to have revealed huge amounts of cash, investments and
gold running into crores of rupees.
