New Delhi: PM Modi, has finally decided to intervene ion the ongoing massive fight, within the country's top investigating agency CBI, by summoning the the agency's two top men. This comes after the CBI filed a bribery case against its number two officer, Special Director Rakesh Asthana, who had written to the government listing several charges against his boss, the agency's director Alok Verma.

With Rahul Gandhi, the Congress president targeting PM Modi, the case has taken a political twist. The Congress President has targeted the PM on the infighting and accusing him, again, of making the agency a weapon of political vendetta. Sources in the PM's office say the CBI has not sought permission to act against its officer, Mr Asthana, as is required in such cases.

Today, the CBI arrested Devender Kumar, an officer who worked with Rakesh Asthana. 

The Central Bureau of Investigation's First Information Report (FIR) against Rakesh Asthana is based on the claims of Sathish Sana, a Hyderabad-based businessman investigated in connection with meat exporter Moin Qureshi, who is accused of money-laundering.

Sathish Sana said that he was asked to pay a bribe of Rs. 5 crore to Mr Asthana, the investigating officer, to be rid of the case. An investment banker based in Dubai, Manoj Prasad was allegedly the middleman who asked him to pay this bribe.
