‘Over 700 CBI investigations pending for more than a year’: Central Vigilance Commission

The apex vigilance body said a major share of complaints against public servants are vague, unverifiable and made to harass.
Hindustan Times
Sep 27, 2020
It was found that about 25 corruption investigations in CBI are pending beyond five years. Overall, total 1,239 investigations and enquiries were pending in CBI till December last year.
The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has claimed that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has been slow in investigating certain cases due to several reasons including work overload, delay in obtaining reply to the Letter Rogatories (LRs) sent to various countries seeking information, government departments not supplying relevant records and sanction to the agency, delay in obtaining forensic reports from laboratories, among other reasons.

Anonymous ComplaintDon’t Act On Anonymous Corruption Complaints, Directive to Government Departments

Anonymous complaints are those complaints which do not carry name and address of the complainant.
Sep 28, 2020 : Dtf.in
According to the Department of Personnel and Training’s O.M. dated 08.10.2018, no action is required to be taken on anonymous complaints, irrespective of the nature of the allegations and that such complaints need to be simply filed.
In this regard, the Central Vigilance Commission has issued further clarification as under:-

“The Commission has observed instances wherein some Departments/Organisations are taking cognizance of anonymous complaints,  despite strict guidelines issued by DoPT and the CVC. Such non-compliance/violation of guidelines by the concerned authorities would be viewed seriously.”

It has, inter alia, been held by Hon’ble Supreme Courtin the case of Prem Chand Vs. State of Haryana that “Although, the   sample   was   received   in   the   office   of   the   public   analyst   on 20.08.1982 and the report was finalized on 07.09.1982 after the delay of 18 days. There is no evidence that the samples were not tampered within the intervening period, therefore benefit of doubt accrues in favor of the accused. Moreover, the report of the public analyst   does   not   mention   that   the   sample   was   either   “insect infested” or was “unfit for human consumption”, in the absence of such   an   opinion,   the   prosecution   has   failed   to   establish   the requirements   of   Section   2   (1a)(f)   of   the   Act   (See  Delhi Administration.   v.   Sat   Sarup  Sharma,   1994  Supp (3) SCC 324). Moreover, no evidence has been adduced by the prosecution to prove the offence under Section 16 (1) of the Act either before the trial court or the High Court.” –  SC Judgment dated 30.07.2020 – Prem Chand Vs. State of Haryana
