Ahmedabad: Gujarat High Court today granted anticipatory bail to Alka Desai, wife of former president of Medical Council of India (MCI) Ketan Desai.

Alka has sought transit anticipatory bail as her name appears in the case filed by CBI against Ketan Desai, for having disproportionate assets.

Justice Z K Saiyad while granting transit anticipatory bail said Alka needs to remain present before the CBI authorities in Delhi by August 9.

Alka had filed for transit anticipatory bail as she has to file for anticipatory bail before a court in Delhi. In her application she had stated that she should not be arrested by the CBI in the disproportionate assets case until she files for anticipatory bail in Delhi court.

Earlier, a local court here had rejected Alka's similar application following which she had approached the Gujarat High Court.

CBI had registered a disproportionate assets case against ex-MCI chief Ketan Desai, his wife and mother in May for having assets worth over Rs 24 crore, more than the known sources of their income.

Alka, in her application claimed that the CBI had arrested her husband in a second case as soon as he was granted bail by Delhi court. She has further claimed that her mother was not well and was admitted in intensive care unit of a private hospital.
