CBI asked to submit files of 6 charges against Verma
NOW, Alok Verma has fresh trouble up his sleeves after being shunted out as the chief of CBI. The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has asked the CBI to hand over documents related to six cases where Verma is accused of wrongdoing.
The CVC is looking into the role of Verma, the then CBI director, in these cases.
