New Delhi: Former Medical Council of India
chief Ketan Desai, in judicial custody in connection with a
graft case, has been admitted to AIIMS for treatment of a
bacterial infection.

Desai, who has been lodged in Tihar Jail, was admitted
in the old private ward of the AIIMS surgery department on
June 11.

Desai is undergoing treatment for a pus cavity or
abscess caused by bacterial infection, doctors said.

"He is undergoing treatment and as soon as his condition
improves we will discharge him," they said.
Desai and three others were arrested by the CBI on
April 23 for allegedly demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs
two crore from the owners of a medical college in Patiala for
permitting them to admit students despite lack of
infrastructure.

Later, searches at the premises owned by Desai led to
recovery of huge amounts of cash, investment papers and
gold worth several crores of rupees.
