Rakesh Asthana, who had a bitter fight with ousted agency chief Alok Verma, was on Friday appointed as the new Director General of the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS).
The development comes days after Alok Verma was shunted out of the post of CBI director and appointed Director General of Fire Services, Civil Defence and Home Guards.
Justice Najmi Waziri also refused to quash the FIR lodged against CBI Deputy Superintendent Devender Kumar and alleged middleman Manoj Prasad.
The meeting is scheduled to be held at the prime minister's residence at Lok Kalyan Marg.
Alok Verma resumed office a day after the Supreme Court reinstated him as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Director with limited powers on Wednesday.
While the apex court has revoked the government’s suspension order, it has also said that Verma cannot take any major policy decision until the CVC probe into corruption charges against him is over.
The Centre had taken a decision against Verma and CBI Special Director Rakesh Asthana after their feud had become public as they had made allegations of corruption against each other.
Sana had claimed that he was seeking relief from the repeated summons issued by the CBI team probing corruption case against meat exporter Moin Qureshi which was headed by Asthana.
