3 shortlisted for CBI top job

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.
