New Delhi,26th May. Based on the panel recommended by the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet constituted as per Section 4A(1) of the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act, 1946, Subodh Kumar Jaiswal, IPS (Mh-1985) was appointed as the Director, Central Bureau of Investigation for a period of two years from the date of assumption of charge of the office,” a government notification said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led three-member selection committee had on Monday shortlisted his name for the post. Subodh Jaiswal has served as Maharashtra Director-General of Police before he was made the CISF chief, and also served in the CBI earlier.
The government has picked him from a panel of three officers shortlisted by the Prime Minister-led high-level selection committee consisting of the Chief Justice of India as well as the leader of the largest opposition party in the Lok Sabha. The other two officers shortlisted were Special Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs V.S.K. Kaumudi and another IPS officer of Bihar cadre K.R. Chandra.
However, Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary submitted a dissent note and questioned the entire selection process, calling it flawed.
