M Nageswar Rao was appointed as the interim director for the second time after former CBI chief Alok Verma was removed by a high-powered selection panel led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last week.

The petition filed by NGO Common Cause has sought a direction to quash the January 10 order by the Centre appointing Rao as the interim/acting Director of the CBI.

Prashant Bhushan insist that mandatory that the selection panel has to decide over the appointment and removal of the CBI director, and not the government alone.

The CBI is working without a regular chief after the agency's Director Alok Verma was transferred from the top post in the probe agency. Verma has since resigned.
