CBI feud: Four men caught and beaten up by Verma’s security personnel, handed over to Delhi Police

Ministry of Home Affairs is currently looking into whether the men held are from the intelligence bureau

The CBI internal war has taken yet another turn as four men were grabbed and beaten up by the security personnel of the sacked CBI Director Alok Verma on Thursday morning.

The four men were first taken inside Alok Verma’s residence before eventually being handed over to Delhi Police.

The four men are reported to be ‘suspected IB officers’ by abusive troll masquerading as journalists, who, according to ‘sources’ could be delusional.

However, reports are emerging that that may not be the case.

According to the reports, the four men were present near Verma’s residence and they were targetted by the security personnel of the former CBI chief, who allegedly obstructed them from carrying out their work. The presumed IB officials were caught near Verma’s official residence around 6 AM today by Verma’s personal security officials.

The four men are reportedly identified as Dhiraj Kumar Singh, Ajay Kumar, Prashant Kumar and Vinit Kumar Gupta. The Delhi Police have taken all the four into their custody.

The ongoing CBI ‘turf-war’ between the two topmost officials Alok Verma and Rakesh Asthana has become a national issue presently. The issue which began as a turf war has now taken unprecedented turns leading into the politicisation of a sensitive issue.

The Union government soon stepped in to resolving the issue and decided to change the top leadership of the CBI comes against the backdrop of an ugly feud between the CBI Director Verma and Special Director Asthana over the issue of an alleged bribery case involving Asthana. It appointed senior IPS officer M Nageshwar Rao to take over the duties and functions of CBI Director.

Alok Verma, a 1979 batch IPS officer from AGMUT (Arunachal, Goa, Mizoram, UTs) cadre has also accused Asthana of his involvement in alleged corruption with regard to the Sterling Biotech case and has filed an FIR against Asthana alleging him of receiving Rs 3 crore as a bribe in Moin Qureshi case.

Meanwhile, Asthana has responded to the charges by writing to the Cabinet Secretary saying that Verma was interfering in his investigation and had tried to stall a raid on Lalu Prasad in the IRCTC case. Rakesh Asthana also alleged that Verma had accepted to the bribe from Satish Sana in relation to Moin Qureshi’s case.
