AHMEDABAD: A Division Bench of the Gujarat High Court on Wednesday refused to hear a public interest litigation petition seeking to cancel the election of the former Medical Council of India president, Ketan Desai, to the Gujarat University Senate.
Justices Jayant Patel and S.R. Brahmbhatt suggested that the matter be taken up by the first Bench which usually hears PIL petitions.
The charge of the first court was, however, given to the Patel–Brahmbhatt Bench in the absence of Chief Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya, who would not be available till December 10, but it did not entertain the petition against Dr. Desai.
The petition, filed by Raghuvir Gadhiya, a former Senate member, pointed out that Dr. Desai was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation on graft charges.
The MCI also wrote to Vice-Chancellor Parimal Trivedi suggesting that Dr. Desai's election be cancelled.
