Mangalore, Jan 24: The Central Bureau of Investigation has conducted raids on Dental Council of India members at eight places across the country including the port city of Mangalore.

Apart from Mangalore, the raids were conducted in Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore, Namakkal and Jabalpur too on Wednesday.

The raids were part of CBI’s continued investigation into an alleged bribery case related to grant of approval to colleges for running various courses by members of Dental Council of India (DCI).

CBI sources said that the agency expanded its probe searching premises of three members of the council's executive committee and six private dental colleges, in different places of the country.

They revealed that premises of executive committee members, Dr S M Jayakar in Bangalore, Y Bharat Shetty in Mangalore and Sateesh Kumar Reddy in Hyderabad were searched.

Bharat Shetty, whose residence in Attavar, was searched by CBI sleuths, is also the state vice president of BJP Yuva Morcha.

Another source said both Jayakar and Bharath Shetty, were in Delhi for an executive committee meeting when the searches were carried out.

“The searches were carried out based on the information provided by some insiders,” a source said, without revealing the names of whistle-blowers.

Having received leads that some private colleges were given permissions to run courses despite several inadequacies in the infrastructure among other things, the agency also raided about six private dental colleges.

The CBI, on January 21, had arrested a Dental Council of India member (of a private dental college and hospital at Melmaruvathur, in Tamil Nadu) in an on-going investigation of an alleged bribery case relating to grant of approval by Dental Council of India for starting Post-Graduate Dental Course in 2012.

And earlier, (during second week of January, 2013) the agency had arrested a Member of Dental Council of India for accepting a bribe of Rs 25 lakh and three private persons/officials of a private dental college and hospital at Melmaruvathur for offering the bribe.
