Rahul Gandhi Arrested by Police for Protesting Against Modi Govt

Congress president Rahul Gandhi and other Congress leaders were detained today by the Delhi Police while they were protesting against Modi government’s alleged interference in the affairs of CBI.

Today, a large number of Congress workers had planned to hold a demonstration in front of the CBI office in Delhi. Rahul Gandhi had said Wednesday that CBI Director Alok Verma was collecting papers related to Modi’s Rafale corruption and he was forced to go on leave. “The country and the Constitution are under attack,” he had said in his tweet in Hindi.

Meanwhile, the Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi today ordered the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) to complete the inquiry in 10 days for the allegations of corruption against CBI Director Alok Verma, who was forced by the government to go on leave.

The CJI was hearing a petition filed by Verma through a senior lawyer Fali Nariman to challenge the government order. The court said that the probe will be conducted by an ex-Supreme Court judge AK Patnaik.

“We are glad to hear that the Supreme Court has restrained the Modi government from destroying the CBI and covering up corruption in the Rafale scam,” Congress said in response to today’s Supreme Court decision.
