The CBI is likely to file a chargesheet against former health minister Anbumani Ramadoss and two other ministry officials for allegedly aiding an Indore-based medical college to get MCI accreditation even though it was not eligible for it.

The agency has sought government nod for prosecution of the two officials - a deputy secretary and an under secretary -- and two doctors of Safdarjung Medical College, a CBI source said. Once they get sanction, Ramadoss could be made an accused in the chargesheet, the source said. The chargesheet is likely to be filed against the five accused, including the two doctors, said a CBI source.

When contacted over the phone, Ramadoss's personal assistant Swaminathan said there was nothing in the case and CBI had not finalised the name of the accused.

Indore-based Index Medical College allegedly got Ramadoss' nod to enroll students for its second batch despite the objections of the Supreme Court and Medical Council of India in 2008.
