Alok Verma takes charge again, day after being reinstated as CBI Director

Updated:1 month, 1 week ago IST

New Delhi, Jan 09 (ANI): A day after being reinstated by the Supreme Court, Alok Verma resumed charge as the CBI Director on Wednesday, about two-and-a-half months after being divested of his powers and sent on leave by the government. Verma’s two-year tenure as CBI Director ends on January 31. On the midnight of October 23, 2018, the government had sent Verma along with Special Director Rakesh Asthana, Number two in the CBI, on leave in the wake of their bitter fight. Verma had challenged the government’s order in the Supreme Court which on Tuesday directed that he be reinstated as the CBI chief but barred him from taking any major policy decisions. He has also been asked by the top court to respond to the CVC inquiry on corruption allegations in a sealed envelope.
