No entry for CBI in Rajasthan | Need to seek express state government approval

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will need to seek the approval of the state government before entering Rajasthan.

The CBI will now not be able to conduct any enquiry within the state without seeking express approval from the state government.

The Rajasthan government has revoked the general consent for CBI to enter the state to probe any case, to which BJP has said that there is an indirect emergency in Rajasthan.

Rajasthan becomes the fourth state after Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and West Bengal to revoke these provisions. All of these states’ governments are non BJP and have alleged that the Centre is using the CBI to harass opponents.

Rajasthan Home Department issued these orders on 19 July, after the BJP demanded a CBI probe into allegations of audio conversations on bribe being offered to Congress MLAs for bringing down the government.

The notification by the Home department said that all previous general consents issued by the state government under section 6 of the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act 1946 have been revoked. Now case to case basis approvals will be required by the CBI for any offence or class of offence under Section 3 of the DSPE Act.
