Telugu IPS becomes CBI Director

Telugu IPS becomes CBI Director

A 1986 batch officer of Odisha cadre, Nageswara Rao is a native of Borenarsapur village of Mangapeta mandal in Warangal district.

"M Nageswar Rao is looking after duties and functions of the Director in the interim period till the time CVC looks into allegations and counter allegations", the CBI spokesperson said.

Verma had on Wednesday approached the Supreme Court against the government decision to remove him saying it was done without following the due procedure. This was decided after he chose to take the CBI to court challenging the corruption case filed against him. Apparently, these income tax officials, despite conducting a raid in 2011 in the premises of the Sandesara group and procuring a diary containing the details of daily financial dealings and cash transactions in favour of certain named individuals and public servants, had not taken any action against the persons named in the diary. It is stated that the present petition seeks his removal from CBI owing to subsequent developments, and does not challenge his appointment.
