The Maharashtra Director General of Police has more or less given a clean chit to all police officers — KL Bishnoi and seven others — against whom former law professor of Siddharth College Chitra Salunkhe had levelled allegations. She had approached the Bombay High Court seeking action against these officers on April 9, 2012.
The former law professor had alleged that Bishnoi, currently serving as Inspector General (Protection of Civil Rights), cleared a law examination in spite of remaining absent for a practical examination on March 12, 2005. She alleged that he colluded with I A Inamdar, principal of Siddharth College, where the examination was being conducted, in order to pass the exam.
Sources said the DGP, whose office had summoned all concerned before finalising the report, had found that while Bishnoi was to appear for the viva examination around 8.30 am on the particular day, he had reached the college an hour or so earlier. Since Salunkhe was not there, the principal had taken the viva examination himself. However, in Salunkhe's exam sheet, Bishnoi was marked absent.
While the High Court on Wednesday directed the state police to give a copy of the DGP's report to Salunkhe, sources said the report, which was submitted to the court on July 24, has put the blame squarely on Siddharth College for mismanaging the examination process. A tussle essentially between Salunkhe and Inamdar has spilled on to the police, said a source.
There were cases pending against Salunkhe, including one pertaining to an alleged fake Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree. Salunkhe had earlier filed an affidavit in which she referred to a letter purportedly issued by the Kakatia University, from where she is alleged to have got the fake degree. She cited an RTI reply in which it was revealed that the Economic Offences Wing (EOW), to which the letter was addressed, had not received any such letter.
