Ousted CBI chief Alok Verma says allegations against him are unsubstantiated


New Delhi: Ousted Central Bureau of Investigation Director Alok Verma, who was removed as the agency’s chief on Thursday by a committee headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said he was transferred from the director’s post on the basis of allegations raised by one person.

The Chhattisgarh government on Thursday withdrew general consent granted to the Central Bureau of Investigation to inquire cases in the state.

Meanwhile, the Centre on Thursday launched a five-year action plan, the National Clean Air Programme, to tackle air pollution in a time-bound manner across the country.
