Manmohan Singh New Delhi, Apr 30 (ANI): Asserting that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) should set higher standards for probing cases and bring guilty to book irrespective of their positions, Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on Saturday asked the probe agency to investigate corruption cases without any fear or favour in a speedy manner.

The Prime Minister, who inaugurated the CBI Headquarters here, said: “CBI should act without fear or favour and bring all those to books who are guilty irrespective of their positions. Whoever transgresses the law of the land, however mighty, has to be brought to book.”

Dr Singh further said the handling of high-profile cases constitutes a litmus test for CBI officers.

“The CBI investigation should be without vendetta, witch hunt and harassment of innocent. The CBI has set benchmark for other investigating agencies in the country to emulate, but there is room for improvement,” he said lauding the role of the investigating agency.

“Our government is committed to provide manpower, finances and technology that this premier investigating agency requires,” he added.

Further describing the new CBI building as a state-of-the-art and green building, Dr. Singh said: “I am sure that this new building will provide all of you a congenial and comfortable habitat.” (ANI)
