SC appoints new inquiry officer, suspension to continue

Salunkhe claims that the allegations have been made against her because she had objected to an alleged examination malpractice case involving police officer K L Bishnoi, who is serving as Additional Director General of Police (Planning and Co-ordination).

Speaking to The Indian Express, Salunkhe said that she has moved an application before the apex court seeking that another judge be appointed as an inquiry officer. "Justice (Retd) Baam had earlier been appointed to inquire into allegations made by me, and has given a finding which is not in my favour. Hence, according to me, she cannot be appointed as an inquiry officer in this matter."
