1983 batch IPS officer Rishi Kumar Shukla has been appointed as the new chief of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The IPS officer of Madhya Pradesh cadre was appointed by the PM Narendra Modi led-selection committee.

“The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet has, based on the panel recommended by the Committee constituted as per Section 4A(1) of the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act, 1946, approved the appointment of Shri Rishi Kumar Shukla, IPS (MP: 1983) as Director, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) vice Shri Alok Kumar Verma, IPS (AGMU: 1979), for a period of two years from the date of assumption of charge of the office,” read a letter by the Department of Personnel and Training.

 

CBI has been in a tandem since last year, when former director Alok Verma and special director Rakesh Asthana were sent on leave after allegations of corruption and the matter was heard before the Supreme Court, which in turn criticized the government’s order and reinstated Alok Verma but the high powered committee removed him under 36 hours.
