Major reshuffle in CBI

20 Central Bureau of Investigation officials were transferred and posted in different States on Monday.
Among them are 13 officials of the Superintendent of Police rank and the rest are Assistant Superintendents of Police.
In a major reshuffle, interim CBI director Nageswara Rao has transferred 20 officers, including the investigation officer of the 2G scam case, Vivek Priyadarshi. Mr Priyadarshi, posted in the anti-corruption branch in Delhi, has been transferred to Chandigarh.
The move comes days before the Prime Minister-led selection committee is to decide on the next CBI Director. The committee is scheduled to meet on January 24.
Prem Gautam, posted in the special unit of the CBI which does internal snooping on officers as a vigilance measure, has been relieved from the position. He will continue to probe economic offences and will also handle the additional charge of the deputy director (personnel), it said.
Mr Gautam will be replaced by Ram Gopal, who has been transferred from the special crime branch in Chandigarh.
