New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday disposed of a plea challenging the appointment of M Nageshwara Rao as interim CBI Director.

A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Vineet Saran said that no further interference is required as the relief has already been granted with the appointment of a full-time CBI Director.

The verdict came on a plea of NGO, Common Cause, which had challenged the appointment of Rao as interim CBI director.

On February 4, Rishi Kumar Shukla, a 1983-batch IPS officer, took charge of the probe agency as a full-fledged director.
