The Supreme Court on Tuesday reinstated Alok Verma as Central Bureau of Investigation Director.

However, he will not be able to take major policy decisions till CVC inquiry is over.

The top court reinstated Verma after setting aside the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) October 23 order.

“The government should have referred to the Select Committee consisting of the Chief Justice of India, Prime Minister and Leader of Opposition to initiate Alok Verma’s removal,” the Supreme Court said.

The court said the High Power Committee under DSPE Act to act within a week to consider his case.

SC has set aside appointment of M Nageswara Rao as interim chief of CBI.

The judgement was pronounced by a bench of Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph.

Verma’s two-year tenure as CBI Director ends on January 31.
