Telugu IPS M Nageshwar Rao new interim CBI Chief

Alok Verma /Rakesh Asthana

Congress scion categorically stated that PM can not remove the CBI director and said that the recent move to send Alok Verma on indefinite leave is an insult to Constitution and Indian people.

On Wednesday, both CBI director Verma and special director Rakesh Asthana were sent on leave with immediate effect. Joint CBI director M Nageshwar Rao was appointed as the interim chief of the country's premier probe agency.

Verma, who took charge as CBI director in February a year ago, was due to demit office in February 2019, and a lot of questions have been raised about the Modi government's decision to remove him in the middle of his tenure. The impugned orders were passed on the night following the day when Asthana approached the Delhi HC against the FIR and obtained interim protection from arrest until October 29.

Caught in one of the worst power tussles in its history, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) now has a Telugu heading it in hard times. Deputy Superintendent of Police, CBI, New Delhi, A K Bassi has been transferred as Deputy Superintendent CBI, Anti-Corruption Bureau, Port Blair.

The FIR quotes Raut as saying that earlier this month, an internal half-yearly audit revealed that Maitra, senior manager (finance) of the Engine Division at Koraput, approved multiple payment vouchers for contractors without seeking the "requisite bills and work orders". "The odd timing of the late midnight orders also confirms that they are made mala fide", states the petition.

The case will be heard in the Supreme Court next on 26 October. Additional SP CBI, SS Gum has been transferred and posted as CBI, ACB, Jabalpur. But was the Leader of Opposition or the CJI called? Congress claimed Prime Minister Narendra Modi has "destroyed" the CBI and accused him and BJP chief Amit Shah of "perpetually misusing" the agency.

It holds true for other investigating agencies like the Chief Vigilance Commission and the Enforcement Directorate. Following this, Congress party president Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter to say, "The PM's blue-eyed boy, Gujarat cadre officer, of Godra SIT fame, infiltrated as No. 2 into the CBI, has now been caught taking bribes. An institution in terminal decline that's at war with itself".
