What did the Chief Justice of India say?
Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)
Enforcement Directorate (ED)
Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO)
Why is the CBI in favour of creating an umbrella investigating agency?
What are the merits in the proposition of a single investigating agency made by CJI?
|An example to the situation is the Harshad Mehta case, were CBI invested the matter from the point of view of stock market manipulation and the ED probed it from the viewpoint of money laundering.|
Is creation of single probe agency advisable?
|It has to be remembered that even CBI is a statutory body but has been termed as “Parrot of Executive” by the Supreme Court itself.|
|Merger of all the agencies may lead to dilution of such specialization and hence the same is not advisable.|
What has to be done?
Verifying, please be patient.
