The government notification came this evening after a series of meetings between Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Chief Justice of India NV Ramana and opposition leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.

“The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet has, based on the panel recommended by the Committee constituted as per Section 4A(1) of the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act, 1946, approved the appointment of Subodh Kumar Jaiswal, IPS(Mh-1985) as Director-Central Bureau of Investigation for a period of two years from the date of assumption of charge of the office,” a government notification said.

The CBI was headed by Rishi Kumar Shukla until February 2, 2021, when he retired following which Praveen Sinha had been given the additional charge until the appointment of a new Director was finalized. Before Shukla, Nageshwar Rao had been Interim CBI Director. His appointment had come after the infamous ‘CBI vs CBI’ falling-out between then CBI Director Alok Kumar Verma and his then number 2, former CBI Special Director Rakesh Asthana.

Mr Jaiswal is a 1985-batch IPS officer of the Maharashtra cadre. He was born in Dhanbad in 1962 and is an alumnus of the CMRI branch of the De Nobili School in Jharkhand.

He held the top post in the Mumbai police and subsequently was the police chief of Maharashtra before being called for central deputation earlier this year.

He was appointed the Commissioner of Mumbai Police in 2018. Before being appointed as the Mumbai Police CP, Jaiswal was a part of Maharashtra’s Anti-Terrorism Squad. During his stint in the ATS, Jaiswal was chief of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that probed Rs 20,000 crore fake stamp paper scam (Telgi scam) and played a key role in unearthing connections between some top officials and the accused in the scam.

While serving as the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of the ATS, he probed the infamous September 2006 Malegoan blast case. In the same period, he held an important post while serving in the Maoists-affected area of Gadchiroli in Maharashtra. Significantly, he was awarded the President’s Police Medal for his distinguished service in 2009.

He has not served in the CBI, though he had been part of the Intelligence Bureau and the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).
