DoPT serves chargesheet to former CBI Director Verma

By IndianMandarins- 13 Feb 2019


The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) indicted ousted Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Director Alok Verma on three counts on Tuesday and served him chargesheets into those matters.


The DoPT charge sheet says Verma asked junior Rakesh Asthana from mentioning the name Rakesh Saxena, the then IRCTC director, as an accused in IRCTC scam. He has been accused of deliberately weakening the case against RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav in IRCTC scam.  DoPT was also reportedly probing the role of Verma in removing the name of Ahluwalia Contracts as he was a close friend of the Ahluwalia family.


Verma has also been chargesheeted in Rajiv Singh case. It was alleged that IPS officer Rajiv Singh, a Joint Director with CBI, was a guarantor in one of the bank loans taken by his brother Sanjay Singh from the Allahabad Bank. And for availing the loan, Rajiv Singh had submitted false documents to the bank. It has been accused that Verma ignored this and did not take any action against him.


The former CBI Director has also been accused of allegedly favoring the induction of two officers – RP Upadhyay and Rajeev Krishna – against whom internal inquiries had reportedly revealed “adverse conduct” and “integrity issues” respectively. Upadhyay is currently Special Commissioner of Police and is in charge of law and order situation in Delhi. Rajeev Krishna is posted in Uttar Pradesh.
