 CBI director Alok Verma appeared before the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) in connection with the inquiry initiated against him by the Supreme Court.

Alok Verma, who was sent on forced leave by the CVC presented himself before the Commission on Thursday afternoon.

Earlier, in his written reply to the Central Vigilance Commission, Verma had denied all the charges and responded to the allegations levelled against him by Special Director Rakesh Asthana.

According to the sources, the Central Vigilance Commission was not satisfied with the written response and had asked Alok Verma to appear before them.

The Supreme Court had stepped into the supreme drama that has been playing out within the Central Bureau of Investigation. Saying that the controversy surrounding the CBI cannot be allowed to linger on in the interest of the country, a three-judge bench led by the CJI Ranjan Gogoi asked the probe of corruption allegations made by CBI special director Rakesh Asthana against CBI director Alok Verma to be completed within two weeks.

Both Alok Verma and Asthana -- who were involved in a bitter feud -- were sent on leave by the government to stem the infighting. Nageshwar Rao, a joint director of CBI was appointed as the interim director of the agency.
