The Supreme Court on Friday said the findings of the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) inquiry against exiled CBI Director Alok Verma on some charges are “very uncomplimentary.”
“The CVC findings can be divided into four categories. It is very complimentary on some charges [against Mr. Verma], not so complimentary on some charges, very uncomplimentary on some charges and requires further inquiry into some charges,” Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi summed up the CVC report to senior advocate Fali Nariman, appearing for Mr. Verma.
The Bench, comprising Justices S.K. Kaul and K.M. Joseph, directed the registry to provide Mr. Verma, through his lawyers, with a sealed copy of the CVC report. Mr. Verma has to file his reponse in a sealed cover by 1 p.m. on Monday.
“First we want to be sure of the facts, then we will do what is necessary. Once you [Mr. Verma] file your response, we will decide,” the CJI said.
Mr. Nariman said the reply would be filed promptly.
