On Friday, February, 1st 2019 Supreme Court of India seeked centre response on CBI DSP A.K. Bassi plea challenging his transfer to Port Blair.

Bench Comprising of Supreme Court of India, Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sanjiv Khanna issued a notice to the Centre and sought its response in six weeks.

Senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, who was representing CBI DSP A.K. Bassi said this case raised a question on the governance of the Central Bureau of Investigation, which will also affect the purity of investigation.

On January 21, 2019, CBI DSP A.K. Bassi had moved towards the apex court challenging his transfer, saying it was vitiated by malafide and would prejudice the probe against former CBI special director Rakesh Asthana.

A.K. Bassi challenged this transfer order that was issued on January 11, 2019, which violated the directions issued by the top court in its judgment on the plea of the former CBI director Alok Kumar Verma, Bassi.
