The Delhi high court on Wednesday ruled that any adverse action like termination of the services of All India Institute of Medical Sciences Director P Venugopal by the premier institute would be subject to the final outcome of the writ petition pending in the matter.

Justice P Anil Kumar, however, permitted the institute to go ahead with its scheduled meeting for Wednesday.

A crucial meeting of the 17-member decision-making body of the AIIMS was scheduled to discuss specific charges against Venugopal relating to "failures and mismanagement" in the functioning of the institute.
