The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) sources on Monday said that the required documents and files in connection with the investigation against its Director Alok Verma are being submitted to the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC).
"As per direction of the Supreme Court and CVC, required documents and files are being submitted to the CVC in connection with the investigation against CBI Director Alok Verma," CBI sources said.
On October 26, the apex court ordered a CVC inquiry into the allegations against Verma under the supervision of retired Supreme Court Judge Justice AK Patnaik. The court also said that an inquiry must be completed within two weeks and M Nageshwar Rao, who was appointed as the interim Director, cannot take any policy decision till court hears the matter again on November 12.
The government recently sent Verma and his deputy Rakesh Asthana on leave after both leveled allegations of accepting bribes against each other. However, the CBI on October 25 informed that Verma and Asthana would continue to remain as CBI Director and Special Director, respectively.
