After days of drama, director of the Central Bureau for Investigative Director Alok Verma has been replaced by current joint director Nageshwar Rao. Mr Rao was provisionally held responsible for the office, while Mr Verma and Special Representative Rakesh Asthana, who had been in the eye of the storm on charges of bribery, were asked to go on vacation.
Here are the updates:
Extraordinary Situation: Arun Jaitley
Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley calls this an exceptional situation. He says he will not respond to the allegations that Mr. Verma and Mr. Asthana have made against each other. Since this is outside the government's area of responsibility, we will not investigate these charges.
Mr. Jaitley says the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has all the material of allegations that the officers had raised against each other. Therefore, to preserve the institutional integrity of the CBI, the CVC has recommended that they suspend until completion of the investigation.
& # 39; & # 39; We will not anticipate who is guilty & # 39 ;, he says. If the officials are innocent, they will come back and a special investigation team will investigate the charges against them.

SC to hear Mr. Verma's request on Friday
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear Alok Verma's petition on Friday. He brought the petition through the proponents Pooja Dhar and Gopal Sankaranarayanan, and it was heard by the CJI Bank.
The prayers are three:
(i) Slashes his "violent" transmission, as he has many sensitive cases under his belt
(ii) Cancellation of the DoPT Notice, which abolishes him as CBI Director  (iii) Annulment of the appointment of M. Nageshwar Rao as CBI Chief
Former Director Postpones SC Against Order  19659005] Former CBI Director Alok Verma has contacted attorney Gopal Shankaranarayan turned to the Supreme Court.
The lawyer Prashant Bhushan called the order "illegal" and said the Hindu that he would challenge him to the Supreme Court
"As feared and suspected, the government has the director CBI out of office because he prosecuted the corrupt Spl. Director Rakesh Asthana, who was pushed to CBI by the PMO, even though he was investigated by the CBI himself in corruption cases, being completely illegally challenged, "he wrote on Twitter.
What happens at one level in the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is a "peat war," a struggle of egos between two individuals at the top. But the dodgy developments involving the CBI director and his special director reflect a much deeper malaise – a big blight at the heart of the leading investigative body. The fact that the CBI has registered a first information report against its own special representative is extraordinary. The most worrisome aspect of the ongoing crisis, with director Alok Verma and special director Rakesh Asthana, is that only one of them will be right; Either way, it's the agency that's shown in a bad light.

CBI names No.2 Rakesh Asthana in bribery case

The latest move of the CBI is yet another indication of the escalating peat war between the US CBI director Alok Verma and Mr Asthana received the most votes in the top agency.
Before filing the present complaint, Mr. Asthana filed a complaint against the CBI Director with the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC), a corruption case involving family members of RJD leader Lalu Prasad. The agency then issued a statement dismissing Mr Asthana's charges against the director, saying that the Special Envoy himself had been screened in half a dozen cases and trying to intimidate officials who took on his role. The CBI Director learns that he wrote on 18 and 19 October about FIR registered against Mr Asthana.
