The high-power committee, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, removed Alok Verma as CBI Director, a day after he resumed office following the Supreme Court order that restored his position. Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, who represents the Opposition in the three-member Selection Panel, submitted a six-page dissent note.
The decision to remove Mr. Verma was taken by a 2:1 majority in the three-member committee. Justice A.K. Sikri, a nominee of the Chief Justice of India, was the third member.
