Alok Verma, who was reinstated as CBI Director by the Supreme Court on Tuesday, was removed by the High Powered Selection Committee today evening.

The Committee consisting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, SC judge Justice A K Sikri (CJI nominee) and Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge has reportedly decided to transfer him to the post of Director General Fire Services.

As per the Report, the decision was taken with the concurrence of PM Modi and Justice Sikiri, amidst dissent of Kharge.

On January 8, Supreme Court had quashed the orders of CVC and DoPT which had divested Verma of the charges of CBI Director. The Court reasoned that the action by Centre against Verma amounted to “transfer”, which required prior consent of the High Powered Committee under Section 4(1) of the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act.
