The Centre has curtailed the deputation tenure of senior IPS officer Satish Verma, who was a member of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that probed the Ishrat Jahan encounter case, as Chief Vigilance Officer (CVO) of North Eastern Electrical Power Corporation (NEEPCO) in Shillong.
A DoPT order dated July 4 said that the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet had approved the proposal for curtailment of Verma’s tenure as CVO in NEEPCO, Shillong, and that his services had been placed at the disposal of the Union Home Ministry.

In May, Verma, a 1986-batch IPS officer of the Gujarat cadre, had been served a show-cause notice by NEEPCO for alleged misconduct and unauthorised absence from duty. Sources had then said that the Home Ministry, the cadre-coantrolling authority for IPS officers, had been informed of the notice issued by NEEPCO, which comes under the Power Ministry. Verma was asked to explain the absence from duty and travelling without permission, the sources had said.
