New Delhi: The Central Vigilance Commission probing the two crore bribe allegations against CBI Director Alok Verma reportedly has not found anything ‘substantial’ in the charges against him.
The latest development in the controversial case might embarrass the Modi government.
Completed on Friday, the preliminary report in the case against Verma would be submitted to Supreme Court on Monday.
“ The report contains a review of the documents submitted by CBI special director Asthana against the CBI chief in his complaint dated August 24” reports National Herald.
Supreme Court judge AK Patnaik oversaw the investigation against Verma. Earlier, Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi asked Justice Patnaik to supervise the CVC inquiry.
Infighting between top CBI officials so blown out of proportion that they levelled corruption charges against each other.
Earlier, Asthana alleged that Hyderabad-based businessman Sathish Babu Sana (a co-accused in several cases under probe against meat exporter Moin Qureshi) paid Rs 2 crore bribe to Verma.
Nearly two months after his plaint, an FIR was registered against Asthana with Rs 3 crore bribe charges.
