The tainted Medical Council of India (MCI) President Ketan Desai has tendered his resignation from the post of head of Urology Department at government-run BJ Medical college in Ahmedabad.


A copy of the resignation letter sent by Desai which was received at the BJ Medical college by post has also been forwarded to the Health and Family Welfare Department of the state government.

Ketan Desai and three others were arrested by CBI last month in connection with a Rs. 2 crore bribe for permitting a medical college in Punjab to admit students despite lack of infrastructure.

The four accused were booked by CBI under various provisions of Prevention of Corruption of Act, dealing with inducing a public servant to accept bribe, criminal misconduct and payment of money.
