AP govt files petition in SC over HC revoking AB Venkateswara Rao’s suspension
The AP government has filed a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the High Court’s verdict over revoking the suspension of the senior IPS officer AB Venkateswara Rao and requested the Apex Court to give a stay. Rao had already filed a caveat petition in the Supreme Court.
In the petition, the state government informed the Supreme Court that the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) had dismissed the petition of Venkateswara Rao. But the High Court had reinstated Rao without considering the evidence of corruption against him, the government told the Supreme Court.
