Singh's resignation will not affect 2G scam probe: CBI

"There won't be any effect on the probe as CBI has a multi-layered monitoring mechanism of every case," a CBI spokesperson said. Singh, a 1981 batch IPS officer of Uttar Pradesh cadre, has sought voluntary retirement to take up his new assignment in the international cricket body's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU).

Singh, who was Joint Director in the country's premier investigating agency, has led probes in various key cases. Sources said the agency may take 3 months' time to accept his resignation and complete paperwork considering the fact that the probe into 2G spectrum scam has to be completed and a chargesheeted filed before the Supreme Court by March 31.

The ACSU deals with matters of corruption in international cricket events. Before Singh, Ravi Sawani, a 1977 batch IPS officer of Tamil Nadu cadre, also resigned to joined ICC. Sawani had served in CBI and had spearheaded the probe into the match-fixing scam which rocked Indian cricket in 2000.
