New Delhi:  Rajya Sabha member Rasheed Masood of the Congress was Tuesday sentenced to four years in jail for fraudulently nominating undeserving candidates from across the country to MBBS seats in 1990-91, making him the first to stand disqualified as a lawmaker.



Special CBI Court Judge J.P.S. Malik held Masood guilty on charges of corruption and other offences.

Masood, 67, was convicted of fraudulently nominating undeserving candidates from across the country to the MBBS seats allotted to Tripura medical colleges from the central pool.

He was the minister of health in the 11-month V.P. Singh government between 1990 and 1991.
