CBI Director Alok Kumar Verma on Monday filed in the Supreme Court his response on findings of the CVC's preliminary probe report on corruption charges against him in a sealed cover. 

Earlier the apex court had asked Verma to file his response as 'quickly as possible' during the day when the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) will file its preliminary report on corruption charges against him. The apex court had also made it clear that it will not adjorn the scheduled hearing on Tuesday.

The bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi was informed by lawyer Gopal Sankaranarayanan, representing Verma that he had not been able to file his response with its registry. The bench was hearing Verma's plea challenging the government's decision to divest him of duties and sending him on leave.

"We are not shifting the date. You file as quicly as possible. We will have

to read the response", the bench said.

To this, the lawyer said the response will be filed during the day itself. 

Earlier the apex court had said that the CVC has made some "very uncomplimentary" findings in its probe on corruption allegations against Verma and wanted further investigations into some of the charges which required more time, adding there were also some "very complimentary" conclusions

The apex court, on November 16, had asked Verma to file his response in sealed cover to the preliminary probe report of the Central Vigilance Commission on corruption charges against the CBI Director by Monday.

Earlier in the day, Manish Kumar Sinha, an IPS officer who was part of the investigation team probing Asthana's role in an alleged corruption case, moved the Supreme Court seeking quashing of his transfer to Nagpur in Maharashtra.
