NEWLY-APPOINTED CBI chief takes charge


NEWLY-APPOINTED CBI chief Rishi Kumar Shukla took charge of the agency on day when it finds itself locked in a dirty turf war with the Kolkata Police that spiralled into a political slugfest between the Centre and the West Bengal Government.


Normally, a new incumbent gets a week’s time to take charge, but Shukla, who was appointed on Saturday, took the reins of the agency within two days  against the backdrop of the agency’s tussle with the Kolkata Police which broke out on Sunday, officials said.


The appointment of the 58-year old Shukla, a 1983-batch IPS from the Madhya Pradesh cadre, as full-fledged director is likely to bring some sort of order within the CBI which has moved the Supreme Court alleging destruction of evidence by Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar in ponzi scam cases, they said.
