We talked to the current CBI director Ranjit Sinha to know more, who explained that the resulting action was a culmination of three events: “1. Lower placements in IIMs, which resulted in CBI hiring a few of those guys; 2. The said IIM guys did a regression analysis and discovered a prevalent trend: Every Gandhi family case, ever investigated, had only one outcome—clean chit, the most recent example being that of Robert Vadra getting a clean chit in Haryana land deals. 3. Since the workload is a little less these days, we were watching the Minority Report in office. The idea was brilliant — arresting criminals before they could commit crimes.
“Well we can’t do that, we aren’t so advanced, so we thought why not start by pronouncing verdicts before the crimes can even be committed, at least in the cases where we know what the outcome is going to be!”
