A select committee headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to meet on Wednesday night to decide on the fate of CBI Director Alok Verma, who is reinstated by a Supreme Court order after he was sent on forced leave for 77 days by the government, officials.

The Top Court on Tuesday in a major setback to the Central government has reinstated CBI chief Alok Verma setting aside CVC order of October 23. The court said Verma could not be stripped of his powers but added that he could not take major policy decisions till talks with the Selection Committee.

However, the apex court had made it clear that he will desist from taking any major policy decision till a high-powered committee considers the issue of “divestment of power and authority”.

Court also said that the government should have referred to the Select Committee consisting of the Chief Justice of India, Prime Minister and Leader of Opposition before initiating Alok Verma’s removal. Justice Kishan Kaul who pronounced the verdict on behalf of Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said that the selection committee will be called within seven days from Tuesday to take a decision on the basis of the findings of the CVC inquiry into the corruption allegations against the CBI director.

The Selection Committee meeting is slated to be held at Prime Minister Narendra Modi Official Residence at Lok Kalyan Marg today.

Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi has nominated Justice Sikri to be a part of the meeting along with Congress Leader Mallikarjun Kharge.

However, Congress Leader Mallikarjun Kharge has requested to delay the meeting. He has written a letter to the government saying that he was busy with the Lok Sabha proceedings and hadn’t studied the Supreme Court’s order on Alok Verma.

He has requested the government for the meeting to be held on January 11, giving him enough time to study the judgment. He said that he would be able to put forth his party’s point of view only after studying the judgment.
