India’s Central Bureau of Investigation is a vilified agency. It is considered a lackey of the government of the day. And its track record in terms of taking investigations to their logical closure isn’t particularly impressive. Yet, the country’s federal investigative agency is now, in a manner of speaking, here, there, everywhere. It is ready to proceed with the case against Satyam founder B. Ramalinga Raju, the perpetrator of one of the biggest accounting frauds India has seen. It’s quizzing corporate leaders in a case on the allotment of telecom licences. It has a powerful former Union cabinet minister, a bureaucrat, and a well-connected businessman in custody in the same case. And, it also has in its custody several members of the team that mismanaged last year’s Commonwealth Games in New Delhi. A couple of successful prosecutions, and the agency’s image could well change.
