The CBI has found no substance in the allegation that Union Home Minister Sushi Kumar Shinde owned a benami flat in Mumbai’s scam-tainted Adarsh Society. In an affidavit filed in the Bombay High Court on Thursday, the CBI said it was not legally necessary to name Mr. Shinde as an accused in the investigation of the case. The CBI was replying to an affidavit filed by social activist Pravin Wategaonkar in the ongoing PIL in this case.

Doesn't this smell like a conflict of interest situation? An
organization investigating its own boss.

The CBI's hands are full of 'clean chits' for favoured persons.How can
the 'caged parrot' prosecute a Bansal or a Shinde, not to speak of a
Vadra?If you are on the other side of the political divide, the 'caged
parrot' automatically turns into a 'vulture'.It is high time the courts
ask the CBI to come clean or face the consequences.A social audit of CBI
in respect of cases involving politicians will be in order.

A very good example to drive home the point of why the people of this
country want the CBI to be made an autonomous and independent body...

It would only be wise to close all cases against the rich and powerful. That way CBI, the Courts and the police will have time to deal with problems of theft, robbery and other crimes by petty criminals. The common man would at least feel safer.

Now a days every politician wants CBI enquiry because they know that's the sure way
to get clean chit and continue as usual the business of corruption.

In India, when we hear that the CBI has given CLEAN CHIT to so and so .. bla bla bla, a common average man of this country, understand that he/she is the REAL CULPRIT. What can a caged parrot do anyways? Either we should demolish the CBI Agency, who is there to only appease the ruling party or we should make them an Autonomy body, otherwise no use of this agency WHICH IS AS TAINTED AS THE POLITICIANS, moreover it has become a joke in today era!!!!

CBI is only saving its boss.
This is again an example why country needs Lokayukta and a free CBI.
CBI has not been able to implicate any politician who can support Congress. Lalu, Mulayam, Mayawati, Karunanidhi and Jaganmohan reddy are living proof of the misuse of CBI.

CBI has lost all its credibility.

Same is problem with CBI. System is used to make public fool. System require change and India require 'INDIAN LEADERSHIP' . How we can expect that foreigners will think about India rather than themselves.

In AP CBI says that if Y S Jagan released he will influence the evidence. Surprise can't this be done by a Minister for Home affairs? CBI behavior is very much unfair.

Good Job CBI. You performed very well as expected.... bravo!!!
Indians are waiting for the day when we will get independence. This time
it is not British.. but our honest government servants or can say
politician`s servant.

We'd rather not have these so caled 'investigations' at all when the end
results are so well known and expected !! Just declare the initial
allegations against national 'leaders' as void. At least some public
money could be saved.

I remember one of my CEO's statements, sharing it with all: "if an escalation/failure/mistake happens, its the failure of head of that team and not of the team members"... one of the reasons for less escalations

How can we expect the CBI(caged parrot), to go against the HM of
country, actually the whole investigation was carried(intented) out to
give their leaders CLEAN chit.!!!

I will be surprised if any sensible Indian citizen is surprised at this verdict. Indian leaders are honest. We are fortunate. God, you there???

Mr.Shinde is the cleanest man in India. how can we frame him with Adarsh scam? We should not. CBI is the most cleverest organization in the entire world. When they lose a file or ensure some one is clean it is clean.
