Appoint regular CBI chief 'immediately': SC

Appoint regular CBI chief immediately: SC

New Delhi: The Supreme Court Friday said it was "averse" to the arrangement of an interim CBI Director, and the Centre should "immediately" appoint a regular chief of the probe agency.

The post of CBI Director is "sensitive" and "important", and it is not right to keep an interim director of the agency for a more extended period, the top court observed. Meanwhile, the second meeting of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led panel on CBI chief's selection remained inconclusive, officials said Friday. The panel had earlier met on January 24 but could not decide on the CBI chief. Friday's meeting was attended by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge.
