CBI Versus CBI: Supreme Court Reserves Order On Plea Filed By Alok Verma

The Supreme Court on Thursday reserved judgement on the petition moved by Central Bureau of Investigation’s Director Alok Verma, challenging the Centre's decision to divest him of all powers and sending him on leave.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi concluded the arguments on behalf of Verma, Centre, Central Vigilance Commission and others who were party in the matter.

The court also heard the petition moved by Non-Governmental Organisation Common Cause which had sought court-monitored Special Investigation Team probe into allegations of corruption against various CBI officials including Special Director Rakesh Asthana.

Verma and Asthana have made allegations of corruption against each other.
