New Delhi: Delhi Police Commissioner Alok Kumar Verma was Thursday appointed director of CBI, country's premier probe agency.

His name was cleared by a three-member selection panel headed by prime minister Narendra Modi.

The post of CBI director was lying vacant for over one month following Anil Sinha's retirement on December 2. Gujarat-cadre IPS officer Rakesh Asthana is the interim director of the investigating agency.

Verma, a 1979 batch IPS officer of Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram and Union Territories (AGMUT) cadre, took over as Delhi police commissioner on February 29, 2016.
