CISF Director General Subodh Kumar Jaiswal is the new CBI Director appointed by a high-level panel meeting led by PM Modi.

On Monday 24th May, a panel led by PM Modi had shortlisted three names by Tuesday out of 109 names sent by DopT on 11th May. The meeting comprised of Chief Justice NV Ramana and Opposition Leader Adhir Ranjan which took place at PM Modi’s residence. Three names shortlisted by the committee were: SSB Director General Kumar Rajesh Chandra, Special secretary in the Home Ministry V S K Kaumudi, CISF Director General Subodh Kumar Jaiswal. The meeting lasted for an hour and a half. The criteria of appointing the next CBI Director was based on their integrity, seniority, and experience in investigating anti-corruption cases and would hold the CBI Directors’ post for the next two years. According to reports while the discussions were on, CJI Ramana cited a Supreme Court judgment that said: “officers with six months left in the service should not be considered for police chief posts.”

Congress leader Adhir Ranjan, accused the central government of having a casual approach in selecting the CBI Director, questioning the process of shortlisting and calling it superficial. Also alleged that it conflicts with the mandate of the selection committee. He further added that the power of shortlisting candidates lies with the committee and not with DoPT.

The post of CBI Director has been vacant since February. After the tenure of Rishi Kumar Shukla got over, Additional Director Praveen Sinha took charge as an interim Chief for looking after the affairs.

Bhima-Koregaon case was also being investigated by the then DGP of Maharashtra Subodh Kumar Jaiswal.

The newly appointed CBI Director Subodh Kumar Jaiswal had also expressed his disappointment with the Uddhav Thackrey-led government. Reports suggest that over 50 senior police officers and several other junior officers were transferred without considering Jaiswal’s opinion. Unhappy with the state the then DGP Jaiswal sought a ‘no objection certificate’ for a central deputation which was immediately given a go-ahead by Uddhav Thackrey. Jaiswal along with Rashmi Shukla (commissioner at the state intelligence dept) had also acknowledged and had recommended that the matter of transfer racket, should be brought under Uddhav Thackrey’s notice.
