CVC may summon CBI's top 2

New Delhi: The CVC might summon CBI Director Alok Verma and Special Director Rakesh Asthana to record their statements as part of an inquiry being conducted on the Supreme Court's direction, according to the graft watchdog's chief K V Chowdary.

The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) initiated the probe following a complaint of corruption against Verma.

The commission has got most of the files related to the cases, in whose probe, the charges of alleged interference by Verma came up, Chowdary told reporters Wednesday on the sidelines of an event here.

"We have got most of the files. We are in the process of getting some files from the CBI. Nothing much can be said now as the matter is sub judice," he said.

When asked whether the CVC plans to call Verma and Asthana to record their statements, Chowdary said that "as of now we are examining the documents and if the need arises, then all concerned would be called in".

He said no summons had been issued either to Verma or Asthana to appear before it in connection with the probe.
