Odisha: CBI Files Chargesheet In Graft Case Involving Ex-HC Judge

24 July 2019


New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday filed a chargesheet in connection with a medical college bribery case involving former Odisha High Court judge I.M. Qudussi.

The chargesheet was filed before Special CBI Judge Anil Sisodia who will take cognisance of the document on August 2.

The public prosecutor representing the investigation agency also filed a rectification plea in connection with the matter and the same would also be heard on the next date.

Earlier, Qudussi through Advocate Vijay Aggarwal had knocked the doors of the court seeking direction to the agency to conduct the investigation in the matter in a time bound manner and without any unnecessary delay.

Highlighting the long halt in the investigation, the plea contended that more than a year has passed but no report has been filed by the Investigating Officer before the court in terms of the provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), 1973.

The agency accused the former judge and others of allegedly conspiring to reverse a government order which barred a medical college from admitting students because of substandard facilities and non-fulfilment of required criteria.
