The CBI on Saturday filed a chargesheet against senior IAS officer Lalit Verma for allegedly forging his birth certificate.
The chargesheet, filed in a designated court in New Delhi, alleged that Verma, a 1984 batch IAS officer of Uttar Pradesh cadre and at present posted as Allahabad Commissioner, had fudged his date of birth certificate.
The CBI also began an in-house probe as to why the agency had earlier filed a closure report in the case.
The report was later opposed by the Department of Personnel and Training in court.
The role of an IAS officer, presently posted as Inspector General in Kerala, has also come under the scanner as he was a supervisory officer in the case when the closure report was filed.
