Hyderabad: The suspended IPS officer of Andhra Pradesh AB Venkateswar Rao on Thursday approached the Central Administrative Tribunal against his suspension.
In his petition, Venkateswar Rao complained to the Tribunal that he was suspended illegally by the State government. He also claimed that he was denied his salary since May 31 last year. He said it was not fair that the State government placed him under suspension without any valid reason. He pleaded with the Tribunal to set aside the suspension order given by the State government.

The State government had said Rao was suspended as he had committed irregularities in the purchase of safety equipment. Rao is a 1989 batch IPS officer. He worked as Intelligence Bureau Chief
