Medical college case: SC rejects SIT probe plea, imposes Rs 25 lakh cost on CJAR

IANS | New Delhi |

The Supreme Court (SC) on Friday imposed a Rs 25 lakh cost on the Campaign for Judicial Accountability and Reforms (CJAR) that had sought a court-monitored SIT probe into corruption charges in obtaining a favourable order for a Lucknow-based medical college.

A bench of Justice RK Agrawal, Justice Arun Mishra and Justice AM Khanwilkar said that the amount would be deposited with the Supreme Court Bar Association.

The Central Bureau of Investigation has registered a case against a retired Orissa High Court judge for hatching a conspiracy to help the medical college to get over the bar from admitting students for the 2017-2018 academic year.
