CBI staff crunch: MHA writes to states
CBI staff crunch: MHA writes to states

New Delhi: In order to address the problem of staff crunch in the nation’s premier investigative agency Central Bureau of Investigation, the Ministry of Home Affairs has sent letters to the state governments to send the SP level Indian Police Service officers on the deputation in the agency.

The officers appointed at or above the level of SP in the agency are generally IPS officers, who are sent by the state governments on deputation. But for the last few years, state governments have not send any officer on the deputation in CBI saying that there is shortage of officers. As a result, senior positions are lying vacant in the agency.

That is why the CBI has rejected several requests of Bihar Government to probe into the Ranveer Sena chief Brahmeshwar Singh Mukhiya murder case. On the other hand, agency has demanded deputation of officers from UP government to investigate into the NHRM scam in the state.

The condition has become worse to such an extent that out of total 91 SP level positions in CBI, 33 are lying vacant. Hence the CBI has tightened its belts and pressurized state governments to address the staff shortage.
 
The MHA in the letters sent to State Chief Secretaries and DGPs has sought the deputation of honest and diligent IPS officers in the investigative agency.
