The Supreme Court on Friday said CBI Director Alok Verma should be given the Central Vigilance Commission report on the allegations against him in a sealed cover and asked him to file his response by Monday.
A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said the CVC report should also be given to Attorney General K.K. Venugopal and Solicitor General Tushar Mehta.
The Supreme Court observed during the hearing that the CVC report is “very uncomplimentary” on some charges against Verma and said a further probe was needed on some aspects.
The Supreme Court said Verma should file his response in a sealed cover by Monday. It will take up the matter on Tuesday.
Interestingly, the Supreme Court turned down CBI Special Director Rakesh Asthana’s request that the CVC report be provided to him as well.
