I read a sentence in "The Hindu" which was:

HC remarks on Jayalalithaa death probe panel are a needed caution against a roving inquiry.

"Roving" means "not restricted to one place". But that doesn't seem to fit here. So, what could it possibly mean?

Roving enquiry means

roving inquiry refers to asking questions which are not at all connected with the subject matter.

  • Such questions, which are not pertinent to an inquiry, are more commonly referred to as fishing. – Ronald Sole Apr 6 at 15:17
