Be vigilant against fake scribes, CBI tells officers

New Delhi: The country's premier probe agency CBI has asked its officers to be vigilant against "fake" journalists, who might do a sting operation on them.

In a circular, the agency asked them to stay away from people who "pose as mediapersons".

"The circular has been issued as a routine to alert all CBI officials to remain vigilant of fake persons who may try to embarrass them by posing as mediapersons," CBI Information Officer R K Gaur said.

"We hold the media in high esteem," he added.
