Adarsh Rout: A. Johnsel Raja (54), managing trustee of Selvam Educational & Charitable Trust which was running the Sardar Rajas Medical College and Hospital in Kalahandi has been arrested by EOW (Economic Offences Wing) of Odisha Crime Branch from Tamil Nadu.
Raja was arrested on July 26 from Nagercoil and brought back to Odisha on August 2 in transit remand by EOW. He was produced before the Junagarh JMFC court in Kalahandi, said EOW sources.
As per the MoU, WODC had provided Rs 10 Crores and 25 acres of government land to the Trust. Even after getting all the benefits from government, the Trust managed by Raja failed to complete infrastructural development for smooth running of the hospital and medical college.
He obtained permission from MCI for admission in MBBS course for two academic years i.e. 2013-14 & 2014-15 by showing manufactured/false documents claiming to have all the facilities required by MCI for granting permission keeping the authorities in dark in violation of terms and conditions of MoU.
