Officials of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) were on Wednesday awarded the President’s Police Medals for Distinguished Service at an investiture ceremony.
The medal had been announced earlier but were awarded on Wednesday.
National Security Advisor Ajit Doval presided over the event. Union Home Secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla was also present.
Speaking on the occasion, Doval emphasized the importance of rooting out corruption. An economically globalized world has given rise to new frontiers in crime, especially economic crimes and the need to tackle them with increased international cooperation.
Doval, Bhalla and the CBI Director Rishi Kumar Shukla, released a ‘Handbook on Investigation Abroad’, which is meant to aid investigators in effectively utilizing formal and informal channels for collection of foreign located evidence and criminal intelligence.
