Tis Hazari Court Judge, Manoj Jain, granted bail to Ishrat Masroor Quddusi, former High Court Judge of Odisha, who was involved in a medical college scam over a personal bond of Rs. 1 lakh. Mr. Bhawna Pandey, another accused in the case, has also been granted interim bail for one week. However, the Bail pleas of Mr. B.P. Yadav and Mr. Palash Yadav, who manage the affairs of Prasad Institute of Medical Science are kept pending. Which will be decided on 6 October.
The arrests were made in pursuance of an FIR according to which Mr. Quddusi allegedly conspired with Ms. Pandey to “settle” the matter concerning debarment of Prasad Institute of Medical Science, Lucknow, which is one of the 46 colleges barred by the Government. These 46 colleges have been prohibited from admitting medical students for the forthcoming 1 or 2 years because of substandard facilities and non-fulfillment of essential criteria.
