Former chief submitted his resignation from service on Friday, a day after he was removed from his post by a high powered committee.

Verma said in his resignation letter, accessed by PTI, that it was a moment of "collective introspection".

"Also, it may be noted that the undersigned already superannuated as on July 31, 2017 and was only serving Government as Director, till January 31, 2019, as the same was fixed tenure role. The undersigned is no longer Director, and has already crossed the superannuation age for DG Fire Service, Civil Defence and Home Guards. Accordingly, the undersigned may be deemed as superannuated with effect from today," Verma said in his letter to Secretary, Friday.

Verma, a 1979-batch from AGMUT cadre, was transferred from the position of CBI to General, Fire Service, Civil Defence and Home Guards under the home ministry Thursday.

The move came after a high powered selection committee comprising Narendra Modi, Justice A K Sikri and of in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, in a split verdict, decided to transfer him 21 days ahead of the completion of his tenure.
