CBI vs CBI: CVC files preliminary probe report in sealed cover in Supreme Court

The court on 26 October had also set a deadline of two weeks for the CVC to complete the preliminary inquiry against the CBI director

New Delhi: The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) Monday filed its preliminary probe report relating to CBI Director Alok Kumar Verma in a sealed cover in the Supreme Court.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice SK Kaul took the report on record and fixed the matter for next hearing on 16 November.

During the hearing, interim CBI Director M Nageswar Rao also filed a report on decisions taken by him from 23 to 26 October, when the apex court had ordered for the probe.

Solicitor General (SG) Tushar Mehta, appearing for the CVC, told the court that former apex court judge AK Patnaik supervised the CVC inquiry which was completed on 10 November.

The CJI observed that the Registry was open on Sunday also but no intimation was given to the Registrar regarding filing of the report.

Later the SG tendered an apology and said though he was not explaining the circumstances there was a delay on their part in submitting the report.

On 26 October, the top court had appointed Justice Patnaik to supervise the ongoing inquiry of CVC against Verma.

The apex court had also issued notices to the Centre and the CVC seeking their replies on Verma’s petition challenging the government’s decision to divest him of his powers as CBI chief and sending him on leave.

Verma’s deputy Rakesh Asthana, Special Director CBI, was also sent on leave by the Centre.

The court on 26 October had also set a deadline of two weeks for the CVC to complete the preliminary inquiry against the CBI director.

It had also barred Rao, who has been given interim charge of the CBI, from taking any major decision.

Besides the plea filed by Verma, the court is also seized of the PIL filed by NGO Common Cause, which has sought a probe by special team against CBI officers including Asthana, and had issued notices to the Centre, CBI, CVC, Asthana, Verma and Rao asking them to respond to it by 12 November.

Asthana has also moved the Supreme Court with a separate petition in the matter and has sought removal of Verma from the post of CBI Director.

Later, on 4 November, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge had moved the top court contending that divesting Verma of his statutory powers and functions is “completely and arbitrary”.
