CBI chief naps, again

CBI Director Ranjit Sinha was on Sunday seen nodding off during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech on the need for “smart policing” at a meeting of top police officers here.

Television cameras showed footage of Sinha apparently taking a nap, ironically at a time when the Prime Minister talked about the need for security personnel to stay alert and be accountable. CBI spokesperson declined to comment.

This is the second consecutive day that the CBI chief has been clicked with his eyes shut, the first time was on Saturday during the speech of Home Minister Rajnath Singh at the at the 49th annual conference of DGPs hosted by the Intelligence Bureau, which was addressed by Modi.

Interestingly, the Home Minister was telling the high-profile audience that even retired government officials, with their vast experience, can contribute towards ensuring India’s security.

Sinha, who is due to retire on December 2, has been at the centre of a controversy over the CBI’s probe into the 2G scam and Coalgate. Sinha has been accused of meeting several people connected with these scams.
