Taking the serious action ion the issue, a division of bench comprising justice V.Eswaraiah and Justice N Ravi Shankar cancelled the admissions all the 34 students who have been admitted against the norms and rules that they were not eligible for the MBBS course in Apollo medical college.
On this view, Andhra Pradesh High Court directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to conduct a through probe into the issue right from the stage of application filled by the Apollo Medical colleges for grant permission under the MCI regulations to the stage of admissions relating to 40 seats under 'C' category in the institute.
Initially a petition was filed against the Apollo Medical College in High Court alleging that there were irregularities in the filling of management quota seats in the college. The petitioner stated that the college management has given wrong information regarding the admissions to the government and sold the seats for higher rates.
Responding to the issue, High Court not only ordered a CBU to enquiry but also directed the Medical Council of India and NTR Health University to take action against the institute for violation the undergraduate medical education regulations of the MCI and to cancel its permission and affiliation.
The Bench said, "This court is considered to give this direction having regard to the procedure adopted by AIMSR in granting admission to 34 students who are less meritorious than the first 40 of the merit list of 97 candidates,"
