New Delhi:11/1:(odiannews): Two days after he was conditionally reinstated by the Supreme Court as director of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Alok Verma was removed from the agency again by the high-powered selection committee comprising the Prime Minister, the nominee of Chief Justice of India , justice AK Sikri, and the Leader of the single largest Opposition party, Mallikarjun Kharge. Government officials said on condition of anonymity that the committee “felt that a detailed investigation, including criminal investigation, was necessary, in some cases…” While PM Narendra Modi and justice Sikri were in favour of removal of Verma from the agency, Kharge opposed this, and also submitted a dissent note. Verma, who was to retire on January 31, is the first CBI director to be removed by the committee before completing his two-year term.
