Speaking to reporters here, he said the government had received a letter from the CBI Director on February 10 that no prima facie case has been made out against the officials and no action has been contemplatedagainst them.

The six-member Central Admission Committee (CENTAC), including those from the health department, selected students for medical courses in four deemed to be universities and three medical colleges in 2017 on merit, he said. However, the managements had failed to admit some students recommended by the Medical Council of India for the courses, he said.

The Chief Minister said CENTAC immediately drew the attention of the MCI to the matter. Meanwhile, Bedi ‘intervened’ and met the higher-ups in the MCI with the charge that the officials had failed to admit students in keeping with rules and demanded a probe, he said. The MCI then referred the matter to the CBI for investigation.
