“It is stated that all the aforesaid requests in which sanction for prosecution has been received are still under trial. Hence, there is no input for conviction, acquittal and discharge,” said the Minister.

To another query – if the CBI says its officers are not serious about pursuing their investigations in court and deliberately seek adjournments time and again, the Minister said CBI officers pursue all pending cases in courts sincerely for their expeditious and timely disposal and adjournment is not sought without any justified reason.

    To curb the corruption, it is highly necessary to watch top bureaucrats and Government should not delay in giving sanction to the trial. Such actions would remove doubt that top officers are not punished, because the IAS cadre is so powerful that they generally protect their brothers.

      In India, IAS and IPS officers have enormous power. And some of them misuse this power.

            Most IAS and other civil service officers are mega-corrupts. They enter civil service to become rich overnight. No other reason. Most govt scholarships meant for students are distributed among childrens of these officers and few politicians.
