Verma return unlikely as CVC flags ‘serious irregularities’
Some Charges Need To Be Probed, Says SC

New Delhi:

CBI director Alok Verma, sent on leave by the government, appears headed for difficult times with the Central Vigilance Commission’s preliminary inquiry flagging his alleged role in “serious irregularities” in some sensitive cases, prompting the Supreme Court to consider a full investigation.

The CVC’s report, presented to the court on Friday, noted “serious irregularities in probes into a few sensitive cases”, leading the SC to declare that “some of these charges require investigation”.

The vigilance body had been asked to probe the veracity of the allegations levelled by Verma’s estranged colleague, special director Rakesh Asthana, that the CBI chief had interfered with probes into sensitive cases.

The two-year tenure of Verma, who, along with Asthana, was sent on leave, runs out in January and the SC suggesting further investigation considerably diminishes the prospect of his return from the “forced exile”.

A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph sought Verma’s response to the damning portions of the CVC inquiry report by 1pm on Monday. Fixing November 20 for further hearing, the bench said it would take a decision after perusing his response.

Giving an outline of the report, supervised by ex-SC judge A K Patnaik, the bench said, “It is an exhaustive report backed by documents. It can be categorised into four parts — complimentary, very complimentary, not so complimentary and very uncomplimentary (towards Verma).”
