. The decision came following a bitter battle being fought between Verma and CBI's special director Rakesh Asthana. NDTV delivers reliable information across all platforms: TV, Internet and Mobile.

Kejriwal retweeted Modi's June 5, 2013 tweet in which he had said it was "Unfortunate that in its quest to target political opponents, Centre is undermining intelligence systems with CBI questioning IB officials".

The Centre has intervened to stabilise the Central Bureau of Investigation by appointing M Nageswar Rao as the interim Director, CBI.


The central leadership of the Congress has asked all its state units to agitate in front of CBI offices across the country on Friday, protest the "undemocratic, unconstitutional and dictatorial act of the Modi government to remove" Verma, and demand his immediate reinstatement.

Verma has approached the Supreme Court seeking quashing of a late night government order of October 23 which divested him and his bete noire Asthana of their powers and Rao was handed over his duties and functions.

"What are the reasons for sending CBI director on leave?" Security personnel posted at the house caught them and took them inside. They also submitted documents buttressing their argument for the need of probe. The removal violates the rule of fixed tenure of CBI director, and is made without the consent of the High Powered Committee comprising PM, Leader of Opposition and Chief Justice, which appointed the Director.


Rao has embarked on a series of transfers immediately after taking charge.

NDTV reported that the CBI has registered a corruption case against eight HAL officers for allegedly routing "company funds amounting to Rs 5 crore to certain contractors through fraudulent means between January and August" this year.

In a series of tweets, Kejriwal also questioned the Modi government's authority to send the CBI director on leave and wondered if the move was related with the Rafale deal.


Later, he sealed all the rooms on the 10th floor of the building and issued orders of change in the teams heading different cases.
