Retired Chattisgarh High Court judge Dilip Rao Saheb Deshmukh would take charge as the chairman of the Company Law Board, which fell vacant after the arrest of the presiding CLB head R. Vasudevan by the CBI, from Friday.

“He was supposed to join by the first of December but we have requested him to take over day after tomorrow given the situation now. I am given to understand that he will fly in tomorrow and take over day after,” said Corporate Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid.

Vasudevan, who was both a member and the presiding chairman of the CLB, was arrested by CBI on charges of bribery.
