CBI Director selection committee members Highlights: The meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led selection committee to decide on the next CBI Director remained inconclusive on Thursday. A list of eligible officers along with their dossiers was shared with the panel members but no decision has been taken so far. Another meeting of the panel is likely to be held soon to finalise the name. The meeting, which was held at the prime minister’s official residence 7 Lok Kalyan Marg, was attended by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge.
Talking to reporters after the meeting, Kharge said, “There was discussion on the names. There was no mention of their career details including relevant experience. We (referring to CJI Gogoi) have asked them to provide all the necessary details. The next meeting will be convened may be by next week”.
The post of the CBI chief has been lying vacant since January 10 after the unceremonious exit of Alok Verma, who was engaged in a bitter fight with Gujarat-cadre IPS officer Rakesh Asthana over corruption charges.
