CBI inducts 23rd batch of SI cadets

first_imgNew Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation on Friday officially inducted the 23rd batch of sub-inspector cadets into the agency at the CBI Academy in Ghaziabad in the presence of Director Rishi Kumar Shukla.13 cadets, including one woman, had joined the academy in October last year as sub-inspector probationers after being selected through the Staff Selection Committee’s Combined Graduate Level Examination and the departmental examination. In what Director Shukla called the most demanding test of intellectual and physical abilities, all the probationers were put through 32 weeks of rigorously hard and diligent training at the academy that also inculcated the highest standards of professional integrity a nd rectitude, respect for human rights, and a strong sense of discipline. The cadets were trained in laws and investigation skills, including investigation of anti-corruption cases, drug-related offences, human-trafficking, wildlife crimes, cybercrime, bank frauds, securities frauds, and different ways to collect intelligence and evidence in specific types of cases. Congratulating the newest batch of CBI sub-inspectors, Shukla said the cadets will now have to bear the tremendous responsibility that comes with being a part of the nation’s premier investigative agency. He said that members of the public have time and again placed immense trust in the agency to be impartial and have integrity in their investigations and that the cadets’ “positive attitude and perseverance will play an important role in taking the glory of the organisation to new heights”. Shukla also handed out the Director’s Trophy for Best Probationer and Runner-up to Shashank Singh Rathour and Harish Shukla. Joint Director for Training, Sharad Agarwal was also at the occasion, presenting the course report and duly thanked senior CBI officials, and heads of all departments for the presence. The CBI also released updated versions of two handbooks on the Standard Operating Procedure for Investigation of Bank Frauds and the Handbook on Laws and Procedure of Banking, in the face of the increasing sophistication of economic crimes and criminals.last_img read more
