CBI: No second line management yet?

By IndianMandarins 08 Jan 2020

People in the power corridors often discuss about the complete vacuum in the second-line management of country’s premier investigative agency -- CBI. Reportedly, after the bitter faction-feud at the top of the CBI, the NaMo administration has been highly cautious of any unwarranted situation to arise again. The CBI has a sanctioned post of Special Director and three posts of Additional Director General but all posts are vacant at the moment.
Reportedly, it’s a deliberate move of the NaMo administration to keep complete silence over filling up of those posts. It is believed that it wants the CBI to be given adequate time to restore its glory under upright chief Rishi Kumar Shukla (IPS:1983:MP).

CBI is probing lakhs of arms licences that were issued in the last one decade from various districts of the militancy-hit region.

This is the first major operation of the agency in J&K after its reorganisation as a Union Territory under which the CBI got jurisdiction to operate there under the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act.

Several documents related to the cases, including bank statements, were recovered during the searches that were carried out at three places in Kashmir, 11 places in Jammu and one each in Gurugram (Haryana), Mohali (Punjab) and Noida (Uttar Pradesh).

Besides searching the premises of Mudgal, a 2007-batch IAS officer, and Ranjan, a 2010-batch IAS officer, houses of Itrat Hussain, Mohammed Saleem, Mohammed Junaid Khan, F C Bhagat, Farooq Ahmed Khan and Jenhagir Ahmed Mir were searched.

Mudgal is at present CEO-and-Managing Director of Power Distribution Corporation Jammu, while Ranjan is CEO of Jammu Srinagar Metro Rail Corporation. The CBI was handed over the matter in August last year
