New Delhi: The ousted CBI chief Alok Verma has resigned from service on Friday.
He submitted resignation from service a day after he was removed from his post by a high powered committee.
It was a moment of ‘collective introspection’, news agencies quoted Verma as saying.
In his letter Verma said :“It may be noted that the undersigned already superannuated as on January 31, 2017, and was only serving Government as Director, CBI till January 31, 2019, as the same was fixed tenure role. The undersigned is no longer Director, CBI and has already crossed the superannuation age for DG Fire Service, Civil Defence and Home Guards.
A high powered selection committee comprising Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Justice A K Sikri and leader of Congress in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, in a split verdict, decided to transfer him 21 days ahead of the completion of his tenure.
