A CBI officer, who was probing the FIR lodged against Special Director Rakesh Asthana, Monday moved the Supreme Court seeking quashing of his transfer to Nagpur in Maharashtra.
Manish Kumar Sinha, an IPS officer who was part of the investigation team probing Asthana's role in an alleged corruption case, mentioned his plea before a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi for urgent hearing Tuesday.
The bench also comprising Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph is scheduled to hear on Tuesday the plea of CBI Director Alok Kumar Verma challenging the government's decision of divesting him of duties and sending him on leave.
Sinha said that his plea be also heard along with Verma on Tuesday.
He has alleged that he was transferred to Nagpur and as a result has been taken out from the probe team investigating the FIR against Asthana.
