Central Bureau of Investigation Director Rishi Kumar Shukla today said that the CBI has performed well in 2020 and disposed of about 800 cases despite COVID-19.
In a virtual address to the officers of CBI across India on the occasion of New Year, the Director said that with cooperation and efforts of the officers, the Agency has been able to finalise investigation of substantial number of cases. He said, we need to work hard in the coming days.
Mr Shukla also emphasised the need for officers and others at various levels in keeping themselves d with the latest tools of investigation through sustained training. He pointed out that new and well innovated on-line training modules are now available as a fall-out of restrictions caused by COVID pandemic.
He also underscored the need for supervisory officers to involve themselves in live investigation cases more frequently as a matter of New Year resolution. He said, this will help them to have first-hand experience of some of the present investigation methods.
He said, a large number of high value bank fraud cases have been taken up recently, which marks an emerging challenge to CBI.
