The Supreme Court on Friday i.e., November 16, 2018, in the case of Alok Kumar Verma v. Union of India & Anr., has directed its registry to furnish a copy of Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) report to CBI Director Alok Verma in a sealed cover. October 26, 2018, restraining him to do so. To reinforce the claims, the court had directed the NGO to file the list of decisions taken by Mr. Rao after its October 26, 2018, order. Advocate Dushyant Dave, representing the NGO said that “we could not file the list” when asked by the CJI. The court saying that it will be open for any party to supplement the said list, deferred the matter for next hearing. Refusal to share the report with CBI Special Director Rakesh Asthana Senior Counsel Mukul Rohatgi, for CBI Special Director Rakesh Asthana, prayed that a copy of the report be shared with him, to which the court declined. Emphasizing that it was his complaint that lead to the inquiry and hence he was entitled to the report, Rohatgi said that, “originally, the report was only called for in sealed cover. Now some response is being asked for. It is a matter of the security of the nation. It is my complaint which leads to this report. I have a case pending in the High Court for the quashing of the FIR lodged against him on the bribery allegations. I need to have a copy of the report.” It must be noted that Rakesh Asthana is currently under investigation for charges of corruption. Nexus between the current investigating officer and Asthana Senior Counsel Rajiv Dhawan, on behalf of CBI DSP Ajay Kumar Bassi, said that he is concerned with the nexus between the current investigating officer and Rakesh Asthana. His allegation came in reference with the transfer of Mr. Bassi, who had probed Mr. Asthana before being transferred to the Andamans shortly after Mr. Verma was removed as CBI Director on October 23, 2018. The court has listed the matter for further hearing on November 20, 2018.
