Former probe officer in case against Rakesh Asthana moves SC
New Delhi, October 30
CBI Deputy SP AK Bassi, the former probe officer in the alleged corruption case against Special Director Rakesh Asthana, moved the Supreme Court on Tuesday against his transfer.
Bassi said his transfer to Andaman and Nicobar Islands on October 24 is “mala fide and derails a sensitive probe” and added that allegations against Asthana are “grave”.
He further sought an urgent hearing on his plea against the transfer on November 2.
The top court said it would look into it.
