BJP, Congress Claim Victory Following SC's Order on CBI Director Verma

Calling the Centre's action "patently illegal", Verma, in his plea, said it was in violation of the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act, 1946, which gives the CBI director a two-year term.

In a dramatic turn of event, the Delhi Police on Friday withdrew at least two of its PSOs, who had nabbed IB operatives near CBI chief Alok Verma's house, and sent them to unknown location. On his return to Gujarat, he held key posts under Narendra Modi's government before being brought back to the CBI. A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi also ordered the CBI to place before the apex court all decisions taken by Rao in a sealed cover on 12 November, the next date of hearing. The CVC has also said that for the time being, no monitoring by anyone else should be allowed.

Nariman referred to the CVC and central government's orders divesting Verma of his duty.

One, the SC brought the enquiry by the Central Vigilance Commission against CBI Director Alok Verma under the purview of one of its former judges AK Patnaik who will now be supervising the inquiry.

The top court also said that interim CBI boss Nageshwar Rao will only carry out "routine duties" and restrains him from taking any major policy decisions.

"This has been done as an interim measure and will subsist till the CVC concludes its inquiry into all issues which have given rise to the present extra-ordinary and unprecedented situation and till the CVC and/or Government of India takes an appropriate decision in accordance with the law as regards the measures to be adopted as a effect thereof", the statement said.

Hundreds of the party workers led by OPCC chief Niranjan Patnaik took out a rally and congregated before the CBI office in Bhubaneswar wearing black shirts as mark of protest against the Narendra Modi-led government for its undue meddling in CBI.

He also states that he had reservations against the appointment of Rakesh Asthana as CBI Special Director in view of the cases pending against him. The Congress had been protesting against the government action, claiming that it was prompted by government fear of a possible CBI inquiry into the Rafale deal. Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Asthana, said he has also filed a petition in the matter. "To cover-up its corruption cases, Modi government can make any untoward incident happen to Alok Verma".

"The prime minister acted against the CBI director as a result of panic and as a result of fear because he has helped Mr Ambani", Gandhi said as he left the police station. Both Asthana and Verma had been summoned by the PM on Sunday and Monday, respectively, to find a resolution.
