CBI joins Facebook, seeks netizens’ help
New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation
has joined social networking site Facebook in a bid to get
help from people in cracking cases.
CBI sources said the idea of going online is first being
implemented by its Bhopal unit on experimental basis which
will be further followed by all its wings after assessing
The sources said the agency is garnering good response
from Internet surfers and getting information from all
"Our Bhopal unit is on Facebook. People can share any
information which they feel can be of some use to CBI. We will
assess people`s response through this and if it’s found
encouraging we may plan the same for other units too," a
senior CBI official said.
The agency will seek help in cracking the murder case of
Bhopal-based RTI activist Shehla Masood through its Facebook
"We are getting some help related to Shehla`s case.
Though it has been transferred to our Delhi unit, we feel the
information may be of some use to us. The information, after
cross verification, will be passed on to concerned officials
probing the matter," another CBI official working with Bhopal
Masood was shot dead outside her residence in the posh
Koh-e-Fiza locality in Bhopal on August 16.
The case is being probed by the agency`s Delhi-based
Special Crime Unit.
The CBI, which remains clueless in the case, had announced
an award of Rs 5 lakhs in September for anyone providing
credible information about the murder.
