Mukul Gupta, Senior Advocate who is also the Secretary (Court Cases and Election Matters) of the Legal cell of Indian National Congress is representing Dr Bipin Batra, Suspended Executive director of National Board of Examinations in the alleged case of Corruption, NEET PG Scam and several other matters in the Central Administrative Tribunal. (AICC Legal cell Link)
Dr Bipin Batra was suspended by the governing body of the NBE last year on 16th August 2017 after a widespread protest by the student’s community after a scam in NEET PG was surfaced by efforts of Vyapam Scam whistleblower Dr Anand Rai. Dr Bipin Batra was alleged to be illegally holding the position of the Executive director without governments approval (HT Link, Indian Express Link) and was also charge-sheeted in a molestation case of NBE’s women employee (Click Here).
Sr Advocate Mukul Gupta represented NBE earlier at many times when Bipin Batra was illegally holding Executive director position. After removal of Dr Batra the panel of counsel of NBE was also changed and since then Sr Advocate Mukul Gupta started representing Dr Batra in his cases. This points fingers on the deep connection between Dr Batra and Adv Mukul Gupta.
Nominal charges of a Senior Advocate of in Delhi High court and Supreme court is at least 1 lakh rupee and Hiring a senior advocate by Dr. Batra after serving just a short span in NBE is itself questionable and if at all Adv Mukul Gupta is representing Dr Batra for free, he is violating the Civil services code of conduct, which he is bound to” Said, Advocate, Rajiv Aggarwal
Dr Anand Rai tweeted today to AICC, Rahul Gandhi and several congresspersons to take cognizance of this matter
