" A total of 715 posts had been created in the CBI and deputation of officers other than those of the Indian Police Service had been ensured by amending rules, thereby making the agency multidisciplinary."
New Delhi, Aug 6 - The government does not interfere with the investigation of cases by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Lok Sabha was informed Wednesday.

Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office Jitendra Singh said the government also does not intervene in the judicial functioning of the courts.

He said in a statement that the government had taken several steps to strengthen the CBI to enable it to effectively carry out investigation and prosecution of corruption related cases.

A total of 715 posts had been created in the CBI and deputation of officers other than those of the Indian Police Service had been ensured by amending rules, thereby making the agency multidisciplinary.

The government had also sanctioned 92 additional special courts, out of which 76 had become operational, the minister said.
