Supreme Court vs CBI: Court to hear Alok Verma's plea against CVC order today

Updated : November 12, 2018 12:46:02 IST

Supreme Court is all set to hear Alok Verma's plea against Central Vigilance Commission's (CVC) order relieving him from active duty.

Alok Verma and Rakesh Asthana had accused each other of bribery which led to a CVC order being passed that relieved both of them of active duty.

The decision raised questions on the legality of the exercise as to how and when they can be removed and whether or not CVC enjoyed the powers of reliving them of active duty.

In response to all of these concerns, the apex court had directed a probe to be conducted by the CVC, which would be supervised by retired SC judge Justice AK Patnaik.
