CBI is not an autonomous body. It is controlled by the Department of Personnel and Training in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension of the Union Government usually headed by a Union Minister who reports directly to the Prime Minister.CBI has its limitations. The CBI can investigate only such of the offences as are notified by the Central Government under the DSPE Act.

Normally, cases assigned to the CBI are sensitive and of national importance. It is a usual practice for the respective state police departments, to initially register any case coming under its jurisdiction, and if necessary, through mediation by the central government, the cases may be transferred to the CBI. The CBI handles many high profile cases, and is never far from controversy.

Generally in high profile cases it is seen that state police department do not register a case before they transfer the cases to CBI. This is one of the reason why the culprit manage to escape CBI's clutches. This ...more

Why blame CBI alone? Every agency of the Govt works in the same fashion. After all, there is no Department in the Govt of India or the State Govt which exercises direct control over some aspect of administration in one way or other which is not controlled by the political leaders of the time. It is not that our bureacrats are not efficient. They can be efficient, provided they are given the freedom to be efficient, are held accountable and answerable for their actions of non-performance and are not interefered with in every aspect of decision making.

The hold of the political class on the entire edifice of the bureacracy is so gripping that, the babus of whatever order would rarely step out to do something that their political masters don't approve of. There have been very few honest and brave men, who have done it and in most cases you would be aware how they were shunted from one place to another or had to face the wrath of the governing class of the time.

Thus there is no re ...more

If anyone is seriously interest to avoid recurrence of story like Ruchitas story, one should leave no stone unturned to strike at the root cause behind such sad story. It is very much essential to punish all those who were involved directly or indirectly in supporting ill motives of Mr. Rathore. Necessary police reformation, judicial reformation, administrative reformations have to be carried out in the shortest period and political intervention in these spheres has to be completely stopped to achieve a long lasting and sustainable solution to shortcomings and deficiencies of the system.

In fact India has plenty of laws and India lacks only persons who can boldly enforce the existing laws to punish the real culprit and save the innocent. Those people or social organizations who are talking of framing new laws and reopening of case reinvestigation of the case by CBI or making an appeal for harsher punishment are making simply Bakwas and they in fact do not want to do anything, rat ...more

I agree Prabhat but once again, it is not the CBI but the governing body which controls it should be blamed. Another important thing is that all such investigating bodies of the governments, all over the world, are blamed for the same reasons like the CBI.

It can be dissolved but will it solve the problems? The answer is an obvious no. I think making it an autonomous body like the election commission will be a much better step.
