Central Vigilance Commissioner Pradeep Kumar Tuesday recommended to the prime minister three senior IPS officers for selection to the post of CBI Director. The panel comprising CVC, Home Secretary R K Singh and two other Vigilance Commissioners drew up the list. CBI chief Amar Pratap Singh, who retires on November 30 after a two-year stint, was also invited.
Singh's batchmate and ITBP chief Ranjit Sinha, a 1974 batch officer, is the frontrunner for the top post in CBI.
NIA Director General S C Sinha is next in the race. The third contender is Atul Kumar, a 1976 batch IPS officer from UP. As joint director in CBI, he has handled sensitive cases like fodder scam.
