Dr. Vandana Thakur

Abstract


INTRODUCTION
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is a leading
investigating agency which was formed to investigate cases
of corruption. The role of agency nowadays is not only
restricted to bribery and corruption cases by the
Government employees but the same is also known to
investigate special crimes, high profile cases, economical
crimes including other cases of corruptions. The Central
Bureau of Investigation initially set up by the Government of
India to investigate bribery and corruption in transactions
done by the Government officials more particularly the
transactions with the Department of War and Supply. Due to
the inadequacy of police and inability to properly investigate
the cases of corruption involving government officials, it was
required to have separate and new agency which would only
focus on the cases of corruptions and bribery by the
government officials which ultimately lead to set up CBI. The
Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) established the
reputation as India's foremost investigative agency with the
resources to solve the complicated cases such as murder,
kidnapping and terrorism. The Hon'ble Supreme Court and
various High Courts in the country also began to assign
investigation of various cases on the basis of petitions filed by
any party who felt aggrieved with investigation of other
investigating agency.
