Selection Committee chaired by PM removes Alok Verma as CBI Chief

PTI
CBI Director Alok Verma, who was reinstated to the post by the Supreme Court on Tuesday, has been transferred. 

He was on Thursday appointed Director General, Fire Services, Civil Defence and Home Guards. 

The Selection Committee, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which appoints the CBI chief took the decision. 

The three-member committee also comprises Leader of the single largest Opposition party in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge and Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi's nominee, Justice A K Sikri. 

Sources said the committee found Alok Verma's continuance in the post detrimental to institutional integrity. The decision was taken by a majority with Mallikarjun Kharge opposing the move. 

The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet said M Nageshwar Rao, presently Additional Director, CBI will look after the duties of the Director. 

Alok Verma was sent on forced leave by the government in a late-night order on 28th October last year in the wake of a feud between him and his deputy Special Director Rakesh Asthana. Later, he challenged the order in the Supreme Court which reinstated him, quashing the government order.
