The top court, however, restrained Verma from taking any major policy decision till the CVC probe into corruption charges against him was concluded.
Later, in a statement, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) welcomed the court order.
"What was the Modi government scared of so much that it sent paramilitary forces inside the CBI headquarters on the 23rd October night to search the office room of CBI Director Alok Verma after forcibly sending him on leave?," the statement quoted AAP's Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh as saying.
It added that now it was for the people of the country to give a "befitting reply to this undemocratic, dictatorial and anti-federal central government, which has no respect for any institution".
