Exiled CBI Chief Alok Verma was reinstated by the Supreme Court, three months after the government divested him of his powers and sent him on forced leave. In what is considered a huge setback to the BJP-led NDA government, the Apex Court cancelled its midnight order removing Alok Verma and installing an interim chief. Though the Supreme Court reinstated Verma as CBI’s top boss but it restrained him from taking major policy decisions. The lawyer defending Alok Verma said that the Supreme Court’s verdict is a victory for the CBI.
