New Delhi: Alok Verma, for­mer CBI di­rec­tor who was ousted by a high-pow­ered com­mit­tee, Fri­day asked the gov­ern­ment to treat him “deemed su­per­an­nu­ated” with im­me­di­ate ef­fect.

Re­fus­ing to take on his new as­sign­ment as Di­rec­tor Gen­eral, Fire Ser­vices, Civil De­fence and Home Guards, Verma, in his let­ter to Sec­re­tary, Depart­ment of Per­son­nel and Train­ing, at­tacked the gov­ern­ment and the se­lec­tion com­mit­tee. He stated the se­lec­tion com­mit­tee has not pro­vided him with an op­por­tu­nity to ex­plain the de­tails as recorded by the CVC be­fore ar­riv­ing at the de­ci­sion of trans­fer­ring him.

He said he would have al­ready su­per­an­nu­ated as on July 31, 2017, and was only serv­ing the gov­ern­ment as Di­rec­tor, CBI, till Jan 31, 2019, as the same was a fixed ten­ure role.

He writes, “The un­der­signed is no longer Di­rec­tor, CBI, and has al­ready crossed his su­per­an­nu­a­tion age for DG Dire Ser­vices, Civil De­fence & Home Guards. Ac­cord­ingly, the un­der­signed may be deemed as su­per­an­nu­ated with ef­fect from to­day.”

He al­leged the Se­lec­tion Com­mit­tee had not pro­vided him with an op­por­tu­nity to ex­plain the de­tails as recorded by the CVC be­fore ar­riv­ing at the de­ci­sion.

“Nat­u­ral jus­tice was scut­tled and the en­tire process was turned up­side down in en­sur­ing that the un­der­signed is re­moved,” he said.
