Demand to remove Bishnoi from fact-finding Committee probing escape of 5 criminals


Gone are the days when citizens used to take everything done by the authorities lying down. People have started becoming more and more aware of their rights and have started questioning people in power for any wrong doing.

In one such move, an Advocate of Mumbai High Court, Former Law Professor and popular social activist Chitra A Salunke has in an open letter to the Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis (who also has the Home-Ministry) and the Governor of Maharashtra C Vidyasagar Rao demanded that Inspector General (Planning and Coordination) K L Bishnoi should be removed from the fact-finding committee which is investigating into the escape of five dreaded criminals from Nagpur Central Jail.

Former Law Professor Chitra Salunkhe accused Inspector General K L Bishnoi of colluding with former Siddharth College Principal Inamdar to clear a law exam despite skipping a practical test and seven senior IPS officers of shielding him by allegedly filing false reports.

Chitra Salunkhe alleged IG K L Bishnoi cleared a law examination despite remaining absent for a practical test on March 12, 2005. She alleged that K L Bishnoi colluded with Principal of Siddharth College I A Inamdar where the examination was held, in order to pass the examinations in spite of his absence.

Salunke claimed that he came in the good books of the Chief Minister who is unaware of his past and has managed to become part of the fact finding committee.

She added that he is a corrupt officer and has many cases alleged against him. Therefore he should be removed.
