Ousted CBI Chief Alok Verma on Friday refused to take up his new assignment as Director General, Fire Services, Civil Defence and Home Guards, and wrote to the Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training, asking him to be treated as “deemed superannuated” with immediate effect. Interim Director M Nageswara Rao has cancelled all transfer decisions taken by Verma, reverting to the position of officials as on January 8, officials said.
