DoPT serves chargesheet to former CBI Director Verma

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.

Selection of next CBI Director: Apprehensions turns true

By IndianMandarins 02 Feb 2019

As many senior civil servants in Govt of India had been apprehending the second meeting of PM led panel (comprising CJI & Leader Opposition) on CBI chief's selection remained inconclusive on Friday. The panel had earlier met on 24 January which could not decide on the CBI chief. At that meeting, Kharge was believed to have sought details of the seniority and experience of around 80 IPS officers from four eligible batches which reached nowhere.

 

The top post in CBI post has been lying vacant since January 10 following the the

unceremonious exit of Alok Verma. M Nageswara Rao (IPS:1986:OR) has been working as the interim CBI chief since Verma's ouster.


Reportedly, the High-power selection committee discussed five senior IPS officers but again reached nowhere. Is it that the aforementioned apprehensions turned true?

No action against Verma

Even though ousted CBI Director Alok Verma didn't follow the government advice to join as Director General of Fire Services, Civil Defence and Home Guards on Thursday, the government may opt for not initiating any action against what some consider as an act of 'disobedience'. 

 

Of course, the government might have liked very much that he did join the duty on the last day of his service to GoI. Since Verma chose not to do so, the government is reportedly least bothered about it. Let bygone be bygone is said to be the attitude of the government on the issue.

CBI: Why did the Govt ask Alok Verma to join for a day

By IndianMandarins 31 Jan 2019

In a letter sent to former CBI director Alok Verma on Wednesday, the MHA said: “You are directed to join the post of DG, Fire Services, Civil Defence & Home Guards immediately”. This has come two weeks after Verma told the Department of Personnel and Training to consider him retired.

 

Why does the Home Ministry want him to join the new office for a day he was moved against his wishes? Possibly to ensure that he retires honourably.


Earlier, in his letter to the DoPT, Verma had argued that since he had attained the age of superannuation from government service on July 31, 2017, and crossed the superannuation age for DG Fire Services, Civil Defence & Home Guards, he wanted to be superannuated from the day he was moved out of CBI.

 

But this was not acceptable to the government in view of a lot of legal and administrative complication.

Move to further drag Government in Verma case

By IndianMandarins 27 Jan 2019

Since the central government has not yet accepted the resignation of former CBI director Alok Verma, speculations are rife about the government motive. Instead of letting things go or settle down, it is suspected that some officials may use the government's shoulders to settle their personal accounts with Verma. This suspicion is fuelled by the CVC reportedly having asked the CBI to take “necessary action” against its ex-director Alok Verma in a case involving a bribe allegedly paid to him by Sana Satish Babu. It has also advised the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) to initiate disciplinary proceedings against him. The CVC advice to both the CBI and the DoPT are based on its report submitted to the Supreme Court in November. According to officials, a complaint may be filed against Verma on the basis of an allegation that middleman Sana Satish Babu paid a Rs 2 crore bribe to him in the Moin Qureshi case. The DoPT will look into an incident involving the exclusion of the name of a key suspect Rakesh Saxena from a complaint registered by CBI in the Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corp (IRCTC) case, allegedly at Verma’s behest. The CVC report has highlighted both as instances of serious misconduct. It has also left it to DoPT to initiate major or minor penalty proceedings against Verma in all the other cases where the report substantiates or partially substantiates allegations made by CBI’s then special director Rakesh Asthana. The file is said to be under process for departmental proceedings.

Head you lose and tail I win: Justice Sikri pull outs from London assignment

By IndianMandarins 14 Jan 2019

Supreme Court judge, Justice AK Sikri, retiring on 06 March this year, has reportedly withdrawn his consent for appointment to the post of president/member of the London-based Commonwealth Secretariat Arbitral Tribunal (CSAT).

 

Reportedly, Justice Sikri informed the authorities not to process the matter further in view of insinuations made against him for siding with the Government decision on former CBI director Alok Verma.

 

It is further learned that the Justice Sikri's oral consent for appointment to CSAT was taken in the first week of December 2018.

 

Therefore, it had nothing to do with the CBI matter since he was appointed as the nominee of the CJI in the Alok Verma issue only in January 2019.

 

However, a section of the media that always play the game of "head you lose and tail I win" insinuated that Justice Sikri's stand against Alok Verma in the three-member search committee was a sort of "quid pro quo".

 

This is said to have pained Justice Sikri who immediately informed the authorities not to process the matter further. It is also understood that he will not be accepting any post-retirement job.

 

Indianmandarins has further learned that the CSAT job is not a regular assignment nor is there any monthly remuneration since there are only a few hearings a year.

The High Powered Committee headed by PM Modi removed Alok Verma (IPS:1979:UT) as the CBI Director. The committee included Justice A K Sikri and leader of opposition in Lok Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge. Verma’s two-year tenure as CBI chief was scheduled to end on 31 January but he was ousted 21 days ahead of completion of his tenure. 


Further, CBI ADG M Nageshwar Rao (IPS:1986:OR) will look after the duties of the CBI director till the appointment of new director.


The ACC subsequently posted Verma as DG, Fire Services, Civil Defence, and Home Guards.

 

It may be mentioned that a day after resuming office, CBI chief Verma had, on Thursday, ordered the transfer of five more CBI officers.
