The Supreme Court on Thursday asked the Centre to explain its midnight action against CBI chief Alok Verma, underlining that the government appeared to have tolerated the feud between Alok Verma and his deputy that had been going on for months.

“This situation that prompted the Central Vigilance Commission to take the action did not happen overnight... It is not that you were forced to take decision immediately,” Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi observed.
