The Bombay High Court (HC) Wednesday dismissed former vice-principal of Siddharth Law College Chitra Salunkhe's application seeking CBI probe against IPS officer K L Bishnoi, who allegedly indulged in malpractice to clear his LLB examination, and seven IPS officers.
Salunke had also accused college principal I A Inamdar of colluding with Bishnoi.
In February 2012, HC rapped Mumbai Police for apparently sitting on a complaint against Bishnoi for two years. The court also ordered a probe by the DGP into the role of six serving IPS officers and one retired officer — Joint Commissioner of Police (Nagpur) Sanjay Saxena, Maharashtra ATS chief Rakesh Maria, Additional Commissioner of Police (West Region) Vishwas Nangre-Patil, Brijesh Singh (now Additional Commissioner of Police, Traffic), Additional Commissioner (Special Branch) Naval Bajaj and Additional Director Generals of Police Pankaj Gupta and M M Rathod.
The DGP gave a clean chit to all the officers, but recommended advisory note to be issued to Rathod and Singh for non-application of mind and casual approach.
Salunkhe had contested the finding and demanded a CBI probe.
Justices S C Dharmadhikari and S B Shukre, however, felt that there was no substance in Salunkhe's allegations. "We found nothing in the (DGP's) report which would warrant us to direct for CBI investigation," the court said.
