NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Thursday reserved its order on a plea filed by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) chief Alok Verma and an NGO ‘Common Cause’ which challenged the Centre’s recent decision to send him on a forced leave and divest him of his powers.

According to news agency ANI, a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi concluded the arguments on behalf of Verma, Centre, Central Vigilance Commission and others who were party in the matter.

The court also heard the petition moved by NGO Common Cause which had sought court-monitored SIT probe into allegations of corruption against various CBI officials including Special Director Rakesh Asthana.

Verma and Asthana have made allegations of corruption against each other.
