Just days after Alok Verma was removed as the CBI director, the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet on Thursday curtailed the tenure of CBI Special Director Rakesh Asthana. 

Asthana has been transferred to the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security, reported India Today

The tenures of three more officers ― Joint Director Arun Kumar Sharma, Deputy Inspector General Manish Kumar Sinha and Superintendent of Police Jayant J Naiknavare ― have also been curtailed, the official order said.

The development comes days after Alok Verma was shunted out of the post of CBI director and appointed Director General of Fire Services, Civil Defence and Home Guards.

Verma had refused to take up the new post, saying he had already superannuated from the police service.
