Justice Vijender Jain also issued notices to Secretary, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training, and N.K. Ganguly, Director-General, Indian Council of Medical Research (IMC).
The petitioner, Dr. R.N. Prasad, alleged that constitution of the Selection Committee by the Union Government to appoint the Director was contrary to the rules as the power to set it up lied with the General Body of the NIB, not with the Government.
The petitioner also alleged mala fide against the IMC's Director-General saying that he had been instrumental in the constitution of an "incompetent Committee.''
Counsel for the petitioner, K.S. Chauhan, further said that the instructions for constitution of the Selection Committee of 1994 were violated by the respondents. All members of the Committee should be senior to the post for which it had to select a candidate for appointment while in this case one of the Committee members who was junior to the Director, NIB, was selected for the post.
