Mixed’ findings in CVC report on ousted CBI chief Alok Verma: SC

NEW DELHI: The probe on exiled CBI Director Alok Verma has given “mixed” findings and some charges needed to be investigated further, the Supreme Court on Friday said while examining the report submitted by the Central Vigilance Commission.

A three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, is also likely to consider the report of the commission, placed before it in a sealed cover, with regard to the probe into the allegations against Verma. The court asked him to file his response in a sealed cover on Monday.

The vigilance body had to apologise for submitting its report a day late, on Monday. Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said it was considered necessary to seek his response “keeping in mind the need to preserve and maintain sanctity and public confidence in the said institution (CBI)”.

Alok Verma, whose functions were taken over by an interim chief after the dramatic post-midnight government order sending him on leave, went to the Supreme Court.
