Alok Kumar Verma resigned from service, after he was removed as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Director by the Prime Minister-led high-powered committee.
Verma refused to join as Director-General of the Fire Services, Civil Defence and Home Guards, as per the orders issued by the government.
“The undersigned would have already superannuated as on July 31, 2017, and was only serving the government as Director, CBI, till January 31, 2019, as the same was a fixed tenure role. The undersigned is no longer Director, CBI, and has already crossed his superannuation age for DG Dire Services, Civil Defence & Home Guards. Accordingly, the undersigned may be deemed as superannuated with effect from today,” Mr. Verma said in a letter to Secretary, Department of Personnel & Training.
