New Delhi: Former President of Medical Council of India(MCI) Ketan Desai, facing prosecution in various corruption cases, was on Friday allowed by a Delhi court to visit the USA for treatment of his sleeping disorder. Desai has moved an application seeking permission to travel to New York from July 10 to July 25 for treatment of “Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome at the Wyckoff Height Medical College under Dr Hrish Patel.” The court has imposed various conditions on Desai and asked him to submit his travel itinerary to the court. He is also required to submit a surety and his passport within 48 hours of his return here. Desai was arrested on April 22 by CBI along with three others — JP Singh, Kulwant and Sukhwinder — for allegedly accepting Rs two crore bribe to give permission to Gyan Sagar Medical College at Patiala to induct a fresh batch of students without having the requisite infrastructure.
