New Delhi: Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar has moved the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) here apparently aggrieved over non-inclusion of his name among the three officers shortlisted for being considered as the next CBI Director.

The CVC-headed selection committee has cleared a panel of three senior IPS officials including Indo Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) force Director General Ranjit Sinha, a 1974-batch IPS officer of Bihar cadre; Director General of National Investigation Agency SC Sinha (Haryana:1975); and former UP DG Atul (UP:1976).
Their names have been put before the Appointments Committee of Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, the sources said.
As per the norms, a six-member committee led by Central Vigilance Commissioner selects three officers for the post of CBI Director.The committee comprises Home Secretary, Personnel Secretary, incumbent CBI Director and two Vigilance Commissioners.
The selected officer gets a fixed tenure of two years as the CBI Director.
