Srinagar: BJP led Central Government is mulling to go tough with corrupt politicians and bureaucrats and, for the purpose, has decided to depute special officers from New Delhi in the Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI), Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to take up the cases and investigate them.
“Process to identify officers in the senior ranks of CBI, ED and Delhi Police for posting in Jammu and Kashmir has begun. The officers who have handled high profile corruption and related cases at various levels will be picked up from the three wings and deputed to Jammu and Kashmir to assist local officials in speedy investigations of the cases.”
Sources said that Central Government is also planning to strengthen the Jammu and Kashmir wings of CBI, Enforcement Directorate and Anti-Corruption Bureau with deployment of more officers and officials as their strength has been quite low. According to them, the top brass of CBI, ED from New Delhi will also coordinate with their offices in Jammu Kashmir regularly.
“A proposal has also been mooted for regular training of the officers/officials of anti-corruption agencies posted in Jammu and Kashmir in the Union Capital to continuously update them about the Central laws which were now applicable in J&K after it was converted into a Union Territory,” sources said.
