CBI director Alok Verma has appeared before the Central Vigilance Commission today. He is deposing before the commission, which is probing allegations of bribery against him as per the directive of the Supreme Court.
It may be recalled that he had told the Central Vigilance Commission that the allegations of bribe against him are false.
During the course of the inquiry, the CVC sent a detailed questionnaire to Verma seeking his responses to the allegations. Verma in his reply denied the allegations and also explained why the FIR registered against CBI special director, Rakesh Asthana was not uploaded on the website.
He said that the CBI took time to upload the copy as the search operations were being conducted on the basis of the FIR and a report of the same was to be given to the court. He however said that the mandatory provision of sending a copy of the FIR to the court was done within 24 hours.
