New Delhi, Jan 9: A day after reinstated by the Supreme Court, Central Bureau of Investigation Chief (CBI) chief Alok Verma on Wednesday returned to his office in the national capital.
Verma, a 1979-batch IPS officer of Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram and Union Territories (AGMUT) cadre, was Delhi’s Police Commissioner before he was elevated as CBI Director on February 1, 2017. His tenure will end on January 31.
Verma, who was sent on forced leave by the Centre on the intervening night of October 23-24, resumed his work nearly after two-and-a-half months.
The Apex Court yesterday reinstated Verma as the CBI Director as it set aside the Narendra Modi government’s decision to divest him of his charge to act as the head of the probe agency.
