11 January 2019 Current Affairs:
The Cabinet Committee on Appointments has now posted Alok Verma as Director-General, Fire Services, Civil Defence and Home Guards, for the remaining period of his present term that ends on January 31. He has been removed as CBI Director and the Additional Director M. Nageswara Rao has again been appointed interim CBI Director.
The CVC was of the view that Mr.Verma’s conduct in the case was suspicious, and there was a prima facie case against him. It also felt that the entire truth would come out if a criminal investigation was ordered.
