cbi-postpones-non-urgent-interrogations-Amid the hue and cry over the coronavirus outbreak across the country, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is not likely to conduct any raids or investgations for the next few weeks unless it is ‘really urgent’ or “there are chances of accused destroying the evidence.” CBI director Rishi Kumar Shukla, through an advisory reviewed by indianmandrines, has also asked all the officers to undertake necessary correspondence on official email and avoid sending files and documents to other offices as much as possible. The officers have also been asked to avoid meetings and social gatherings during breakfast, lunch and tea breaks. Meetings where presence of more than five officials is required should be rescheduled or avoided, the advisory states. The working of Group B and C staff of agency has also been divided - 50 per cent of them have been asked to come to office and the other half will work from home. Another officer said, “The important investigations will not be affected at all as we are working on rotation. Everybody is available on phone or email. CBI probes are usually document-based and summoning of accused can always resume after two-three weeks”.
