The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Director Anil Sinha has retired from the post today. Gujarat-cadre IPS officer Rakesh Asthana is going to replace him, as the government did not name any full-time chief. Sinha completed his two-year tenure today.
Asthana, a Gujarat-cadre officer of 1984-batch, got elevated as the second-in-command in CBI two days ago when Special Director R K Dutta, who was among the frontrunners for the top post, was shifted to the Home Ministry as a Special Secretary. The post of second special secretary was created for the first time in the ministry.
