Retired Supreme Court Justice AK Patnaik, who was supervising the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) enquiry into corruption charges against former CBI Director Alok Verma, told The Indian Express that there was "no evidence of corruption" against Verma, and that the decision to sack him was "hasty."

Criticising the decision of the Narendra Modi-led selection committee to remove Verma as CBI Director, the newspaper quoted Patnaik as saying that the CVC's findings cannot alone be taken as the "final word" on the matter.
