After men were trapped outside the house of former CBI chief Alok Verma, the opposition Congress today accused the central government of snooping on “forcibly removed” Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Director Alok Verma through Intelligence Bureau (IB).
The comments come after after four suspected IB men were nabbed from outside the residence of Mr Verma.
“After making CBI as ‘Central Burial of Investigation’, the (Narendra) Modi government now stoops to a ‘new low’ — Snooping on ‘forcibly removed’ CBI Director through IB,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said.
Four men were caught at exiled CBI chief Alok Verma’s home in Delhi early this morning, allegedly snooping from parked cars.
All four, caught by Mr Verma’s security personnel and hauled inside, are said to be junior assistant officers of the IB.
The Congress on Wednesday had accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of “a desperate cover-up attempt” over the Rafale deal and pushing the country’s premier probe agency, the CBI, into complete disarray.>
