In a big blow to the Centre, the Supreme Court reinstated Alok Verma as the CBI director on Tuesday, three months after the government stripped him of his powers and sent him on forced leave in a midnight swoop. The CJI Ranjan Gogoi-led three-judge bench, while setting aside the government order, however, ruled that Verma can resume his role as the CBI chief but cannot take any major policy decision till the high-powered committee that selects and appoints the CBI Director takes a decision on the matter.
