CVO term curbed for flagging scam: says Verma (IPS)

Satish Verma, 1986 batch Gujarat cadre IPS officer, filed a petition before the Central Administrative Tribunal stating that his services as the Central Vigilance Officer of a power corporation were curtailed as he had flagged a transportation scam worth Rs 450 crore involving a relative of Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju and also for investigating a fraudulent land deal in Gujarat, according to media reports.
The IPS officer had also assisted the Central Bureau of Investigation in the Ishrat Jahan fake encounter case.
Verma’s tenure as the CVO of the North Eastern Electrical Power Corporation (NEEPCO) was curtailed by a year in July, and he was simultaneously served notice for alleged “misconduct” and “unauthorized absence” from duty by the Home Ministry.
In the affidavit, Verma said that all his outstation visits were accounted for and were done to investigate the fraudulent activities.
