SC Seeks CBI reaction On Plea By DSP Bassi Challenging His transmit Ordered By Nageshwar Rao

On 1st February, 2019, The SC wanted the reply of Central Bureu of Investigation in a plea by DSP A K Bassi challenging his transfer to Port Blair ordered by interim Director Nageshwar Rao on January 11. Rao previously transferred Bassi to Port Blair on 24 October, 2018, immediately after taking charge following the ouster of Alok Verma on 23 October, 2018.

On 10th January, 2019 Alok Verma took charge as Director after the SC repealed his removal. Therefore, he revoked the transfer order of Bassi, but it was short-lived, as Alok Verma was shown the exit door on the night of January 10 itself. The charge was given back to Nargesh Rao, who again transferred Bassi to Port Blair.

Bassi contended that the impugned order is vitiated by mala fides and non-application of mind as stated in the petition challenging transfer. He also asserted that the order is violative of the SC judgment in Alok Kumar Verma vs. UOI & Anr., which gave Verma freedom to make a representation to the officials regarding his transfer.

Mr. Bassi claimed that “He is being victimized by the present acting/ interim Director-CBI - Shri M Nageswara Rao/Respondent No.2, who represents certain elements within the CBI, who did want the Petitioner herein to conduct a free and fair investigation in the Asthana FIR.”

Shri M Nageswara Rao was the one, who had passed the infamous transfer order dated 24.10.2018 of the Petitioner herein and again the same Shri M Nageswara Rao at whose request and direction the instant impugned transfer order has passed, in utter disregard to the judgment of this Hon'ble Court in Alok Verma supra.
