Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been badly criticized by the opposition parties and finally Supreme Court had to intervene in the issue. CBI Director Alok Verma who was forced to go on leave by the Centre was asked to be retained by Supreme Court recently. This order came after three months from the Supreme Court. Now Alok Verma gave a shock to CBI after he submitted his resignation today. A day before this, he was removed from his position by the high-powered committee led by Narendra Modi.
Alok Verma in his resignation letter called the moment a collective introspection. He turned CBI Director on July 31st 2017 and he may be deemed as superannuated with effect from today.
