Reports have appeared in a section of the media to the effect that the Government is considering two options to end the alleged policy paralysis in CBI. The options are appointing an OSD of DG rank to look after the affairs of the CBI and also to place a senior IAS officer in a supervisory role.
However, the Government of India has strongly refutes this imputations. It is clarified that the Government has taken the step of divesting the present Director and Special Director of the CBI of their powers under section 4(2) of the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act, 1946 as an interim measure.
The matter is sub judice before the Supreme Court and any action that is to be taken will be strictly in accordance with the decision of the Supreme Court of India in the pending proceedings and not before the Hon’ble Supreme Court decides the matter. What is stated in the reports are absolutely false, it added.
