The case pertains to medical college bribery scam against I. M. Quddusi (retired Orissa High Court judge), who was arrested among others, by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
Quddusi allegedly used his influence to help Uttar Pradesh-based Prasad Education Trust in "settling" a matter involving their plea to set up medical colleges.
The accused were subsequently granted bail, but the same was not challenged by the CBI.
Following granting of the bail, CJAR filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Supreme Court seeking the constitution of an SIT to investigate the allegations, with a retired judge monitoring the same.
