Is CBI just a mere political tool now?


CBI, the much over estimated organisation has done less to clear the crime in the last decade. if we look as its basket of cases which it has handled in the last few yrs ,one has less to guess that how politically corrupt they were and how well has CBI been used, manipulated and bewitched to make it more worse.

CBI has the distinction of being the only Investigating agency of India of which everyone is fearful. It is often said the due to its association with PMO or its falling under the patron ship of Prime Minister, the agency has is often used to take the political vendetta and also dislodge the opposition from its position and confidence. It is true that like FBI of America CBI is not a completely independent body however just because of its association with PMO, is cant be said to only have a political connection. Its true that many a times CBI inquiry has been initiated against leaders of opposition parties but its also true that CBI inquiry has been often sought by the members of civil society and other interested good for clean, transparent and effective investigation of the case.

It sure looks like one now! The number of raids have increased by 250% now, how is this not a apolitical move?

Their top personnel are all IPS officers, who don't have security of tenure..moreover it not a statutory body as it has been notified under DSPE by MHA. If its autonomy has to be ensured. There is a need first for a statute which will clearly demarcate its role, responsibilities, jurisdiction and also its own cadre of officers. Recruitment exam should be designed so as to choose persons of highest desired values. It should be made just like CAG. Only accountable to parliament.  But to curb it from assuming draconian powers, a system of C&B needs to be put in, which can be mentioned in the statute itself. Plus there should be performance assessment at regular intervals at all levels of hierarchy.

What is the real picture of today's case cannot be predicted on the videos and headlines framed by media. It will only be known when CBI gives an explanation. But it cannot be denied that CBI is a body which is highly influenced by the central government and tool for serving its objectives or motives. CBI was a body made by an executive order to deal with economic and social offences like corruption and frauds, offences of internal security like terrorist activities manhandled riots and communal violence and other suspensive incidents to bring justice and equality to the people. This was originally done for benefitting the public at large. But the present scenario is that public is not even aware anything thing about any activities of CBI.

2G scam, coal scam, kothari case and many other high profile case have been successfully carried out o\by the CBI and at theh same time it has been criticized to raid the residence of incumbent CM of Himanchal Pradesh Virbhadra Singh, and many other political leaders without any sufficient evidence and reasons. In my opinion CBI is a much needed tool , be it given the connotation of Political and Apolitical by different sections of the society but actions should be taken for making is more independent and robust organisation.
