KhabarCut2Cut: Supreme Court reserves order on plea filed by CBI director Alok Verma

The Supreme Court on Thursday reserved its order on the plea filed by CBI director Alok Verma against the decision of the Narendra Modi government to divest him of his powers and send him on forced leave. Hearing the exiled CBI chief’s plea, Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi asked the Centre why the selection committee was not consulted before sending him on leave. "If you had tolerated since July, it is not something that required immediate action as the circumstances were culminating for a long time," Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said.
