Ghaziabad: Considerable time lag in handing
over cases to the CBI makes the agency`s work to collect
evidence difficult, CBI Director AP Singh said on Friday while
addressing a passing out parade of 15th batch of sub-inspector
trainees.

The agency chief, while addressing newly inducted 72
cadets and their families, said the CBI is not first responder
in many cases making it impossible some times to collect
evidence.

"The CBI is not first responder and is generally given
the task of investigating and prosecuting a case after a
considerable lapse of time since the time offence was
committed.

"It becomes not only difficult but sometimes impossible
to collect evidence. Therefore, only a scientific recourse to
investigation will take it to its logical conclusion," Singh
said.

He advised the new recruits that they need to constantly
upgrade their skills and knowledge of legal procedures, laws
of the land and scientific aids to investigation.

"Advanced training allows police officers to better serve
the communities they work in, and to retain their edge as law
enforcement professionals.

"This also keeps you abreast with the latest scientific
tools to be used in investigation. An investigation done with
scientific methodology can yield far better results and solve
intricacies of crime," Singh said.

He also presented awards to meritorious cadets -- Vijay
Kumar Singh for overall best, Parveen for best Shooting, Rajan
Chaudhary for best in sports, Ranu Chaudhary for Best indoor
and best in Law, Udai Singh Gurjar for Best outdoor and Vivek
Chaudhary for cyber crime.
