Ramadoss appears in graft case, moves bail plea
New Delhi, July 10, 2012 : Former health minister Anbumani Ramadoss, accused in a corruption case, appeared in a special court here Tuesday and moved his bail application. Ramadoss appeared before Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) special Judge Talwant Singh, who had issued a bailable warrant against him July 7. The court cancelled the bailable warrant against him after he appeared before it.
"Since the accused has appeared in the court, bailable warrant issued against him is cancelled," said the judge. The court would next hear the matter July 20.
According to the charge sheet filed by the CBI in April, Ramadoss abused his official position to grant permission to an Indore-based institution to admit medical students although it lacked adequate facilities. The Medical Council of India and a panel appointed by the Supreme Court found that the institution did not have sufficient faculty and clinical material required as per the MCI norms, it said
