Keeping up with the times : CBI to adopt new approach to probe crimes

New Delhi, Sep 11 (IANS):The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is going to adopt a new approach to deal with the cases it gets to probe as there have been a lot of changes in the crime manual since 2005, officials said on Wednesday.

"There is a crime manual and it was last revised in 2005. Since then there have been amendments in the Prevention of Corruption (PC) Act, the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) and the Supreme Court has made a large number judgments. Also, in 2005, cyber crime was not as prevalent as it is now, said a CBI spokesperson.

The official also pointed out that the agency is working to increase coordination with the states' police and investigation agencies of foreign countries.

"There is work going on to increase coordination between various state police forces regarding modus operandi of how interstate crimes are connected," said another person familiar with the development.

He said, earlier very few people who had committed crimes were wanted outside and vice versa. That has changed. "Now the CBI gets requests from other countries also. So this is the roadmap for long term changes," he said.

Additionally the agency is also addressing the lacunae in its investigation to smoothen the investigation procedures, he added.

    The "New Approach " of CBI is to make a complete list of all the opposition leaders - MLAs, MPs and Party Presidents and their family members. Give them few months time and see if they are willing to leave their parent party and join the ruling party to become 'clean'. If not, then start investigating them for all their past corruption cases. Also involve ED , NIA, Judges and media to make it more effective.

    Why CBI should take permission from the State government to probe the case? They should be independent like FBI with jurisdiction to probe any serious crimes anywhere in the country with a simple request from the citizen. Law should authorize them to use the State resources. It is ideal to have more CBI courts too.
