On Friday, the CBI shifted Joint Director V Murugesan as part of the Govt’s efforts to give an “impetus to expeditious completion of coal scam cases”.
The agency also said Murugesan, who is leading the probes into corruption allegations against CBI special director, will continue to investigate the FIR against Rakesh Asthana.
The order stated that Murugesanwas “bogged down” by additional charge of joint director AC(HQ)-I zone which being a “heavy zone” takes away much of his “time & attention”.
Murugesan’s charge of anti-corruption unit has now been given to joint director G K Goswami, who in addition to his responsibility of the Lucknow zone will also look after AC (HQ)-I zone.
