Cen­tral Bureau of Irony

The un­savoury de­vel­op­ments in­volv­ing the CBI Di­rec­tor and its Spe­cial Di­rec­tor are re­flec­tive of a much deeper malaise — a big rot at the very heart of the premier in­ves­ti­gat­ing agency ( gfiles, Novem­ber 2018). Over the years, dis­turb­ing ques­tions have been raised over its func­tion­ing, ir­re­spec­tive of the gov­ern­ment hold­ing of­fice at the Cen­tre. In re­cent years, the agency has come in for ad­verse no­tice in the 2G and coal scams. And in fact, the Verma-Asthana face-off is not the first time that the CBI’s top brass has come un­der the scan­ner for pro­fes­sional im­pro­pri­ety. For­mer di­rec­tor, Ranjit Sinha, for in­stance, came un­der cloud in both the 2G and coal scams. The CBI needs to sets its house in or­der, but its past record does not in­spire con­fi­dence.
