Alok Verma case: CVC submits report on corruption charges, government mulls action
New Delhi : The government is mulling appropriate action against the former Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) director Alok Verma. The Central Vigilance Committee (CVC) has submitted its report on corruption charges to the government.
Troubles may rise for Alok Verma as the CVC has also opened an enquiry in six more allegations which include decimation of lookout notices against Vijay Mallya and former Aircel promoter C Sivasankaran and coverup in the leaking of internal emails on PNB scam accused Nirav Modi.
Based on the report submitted by the CVC, the government may take action against Alok Verma, who had resigned from his post on Friday.
The CVC apprised the government of its enquiry into new allegations which it received after filing the report before the Supreme Court on November 12, 2017.
In Nirav Modi case, it is alleged then CBI boss affected a cover-up of email leaks instead of finding making progress in the investigation when bank fraud in PNB was at its peak.
