Supreme Court Orders Inquiry Against CBI Director
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.
The court also ordered that the interim CBI director M Nageswar Rao will not take any policy decisions during the inquiry period and he will only handle the routine administrative work.
There will be no investigation against CBI special director Rakesh Asthana who had complained against Alok Verma. The next hearing date is November 12.
