Officer probing Rakesh Asthana seeks VRS

New Delhi: One of the investigators probing the corruption allegations against former CBI Special Director Rakesh Asthana has sent in papers asking for voluntary retirement from service.

An SP-level officer in the Central Bureau of Investigation, Satish Dagar has applied for retirement under the Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS), with the agency saying that he cited personal reasons for doing so.

Sources here said that Dagar had sent in his papers sometime in the last week of August.

Dagar was put on the team to probe the allegations against Asthana, that were levelled when the CBI vs CBI battle had reached its peak in October last year.

With then CBI Director Alok Verma opening an enquiry into these allegations, Asthana had then filed a complaint against Verma with the Central Vigilance Commission that had resulted in both top officials of the agency being moved out of their position.
