After much searching for the right person, the team finally met up with Dr. K K Arora, a Deputy Secretary at MCI. The initial meeting with Dr. K K Arora was the first step that opened up a can of worms.

As things took shape, the duo made a deal with Zee News team to give out two confidential FIR files of two medical institutes held by MCI for Twenty Lakh Rupees. The officials went a step ahead to offer their other packages. As per the officials a student who had done his MBBS from Russia could get registered through them to start a practice in India for Rs. 5 lakhs. Assuring Zee News team of their clout in the business, the officials hinted of their nexus with Health Ministry.

With the officials caught on camera accepting bribe and the airing of the sting operation on Zee News for the first time on 14/10/2005 in a special programme, ‘Maut Ki Ghoos’, things got rolling. An executive committee meeting of MCI was held today on the issue, which has appointed a 2 member committee to look into the issue, also the two deputy secretaries involved in the matter are suspended with immediate effect. The executive committee has also refereed the matter to CBI for through investigations and in view of claims made by Dr. K K Arora about his links with the Health Ministry the Prime Minister’s office has been informed of the issue, for necessary actions.
