The top court has fixed pleas of Alok Verma and NGO Common Cause for hearing on November 16.
New Delhi: The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) on Monday submitted its preliminary probe report relating to exiled CBI Director Alok Verma in a sealed cover before the Supreme Court.
A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice S K Kaul took the report on record and fixed pleas of Alok Verma and NGO Common Cause for hearing on November 16.
During the hearing, interim CBI Director M Nageswar Rao also filed a report on decisions taken by him since October 23 as head of the agency.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the court that former apex court judge A K Patnaik supervised the CVC inquiry which was completed on November 10.
The CJI observed that the Registry was open on Sunday also but no intimation was given to the Registrar regarding the filing of the report. Later the SG tendered an apology and said though he was not explaining the circumstances there was a delay on their part in submitting the report.
On October 26, the apex court had asked the CVC to complete inquiry in respect of the allegation made against Verma within a period of 2 weeks.
