A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court has issued summons to all accused including a retired Odisha High Court judge I M Qudussi in connection with an alleged medical bribery scam case.

Special CBI Judge Anil Kumar Sisodia has posted the matter for November 7.

Apart from retired judge Qudussi, summons have been issued against Bhavna Pandey, B P Yadav, Palash Yadav, Sudhir Giri, Biswanath Agrawala and Ramdev Saraswat, in connection with the case.

It may be recalled that the CBI had recently filed a charge sheet in connection with the alleged medical bribery scam under sections related to corruption and criminal conspiracy.

The public prosecutor representing the CBI 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 CBI to conduct its investigation 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 CBI has 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-fulfillment of required criteria.
