CBI Director Alok Verma on Friday appeared before Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) K.V. Chowdhary and presented his side over charges of bribery hurled at him by the agency's Special Director Rakesh Asthana.
According to CVC sources, the meeting of the enquiry committee to hear Verma on Thursday was postponed to Friday due to the non-availability of one of the Vigilance Commissioners.
The officials said the Commission has examined some CBI officers who were part of the team probing crucial cases that figured in Asthana's complaint against Verma.
Verma has refuted all allegations of corruption against him and said his actions were in the interest of the probe against Asthana.
