Indore : Indore bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court has directed Mahatma Gandhi Medical College to return documents confiscated by it of students allegedly found involved in MPPMT scam.

During investigation by Special Task Force into the PMT scam surfaced last year, the college had confiscated all the original documents, including mark sheets and certificates, of its students whose names have figured in the list of accused medicos.

After the investigation was over, the students sought their documents but the college denied returning them.

Some months ago, the Directorate of Medical Education ( DME) directed colleges to return original documents of the accused students but the directive fell on deaf ears at MGM Medical College.

Against the college’s stand, one of the students Anjali Waskale moved a writ petition in Indore bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court through advocate Upendra Singh Chandrawat.

Chandrawat informed the court about the DME’s directives and added that due to non availability of original documents students were finding immense difficulties to take part in medical counselling and further admissions in other colleges.

“ After going through the case, double bench of HC comprising Justice P K Jaiswal and Justice DK Paliwal directed MGM College to immediately return original documents to the petitioner,” Chandrawat said adding that not only the petitioner but other students would also get their documents back as the court’s order was based on the DME’s directive to the colleges.
