The Friday meeting which lasted for more than an hour at PM Modi's residence was their second meeting in ten days. They met for the first time on January 24, but it remained 'inconclusive'
Kharge was reportedly disappointed with the suggested names.
Kharge remained unimpressed after first meeting as well
"The government presented names of 70-80 officers. There was no mention of their career details including relevant experience. We (referring to CJI Gogoi) have asked them to provide all the necessary details," Kharge had said after the first meeting.
Let's take a look at the names in race
Javeed Ahmed, Rajni Kant Misra, SS Deswal and Shivanand Jha are among the frontrunners.
Ahmed, a 1984-batch IPS officer, is chief of National Institute of Criminology and Forensic Sciences in Uttar Pradesh. Misra, the head of BSF, also belongs to the same batch.
Deswal is also a 1984-batch IPS officer who is currently the director-general of ITBP. Jha, a 1983-batch IPS, heads Gujarat police.
Earlier, SC asked why CBI director's position was vacant
An SC bench comprising justices Arun Mishra and Naveen Sinha on Friday asked why a regular chief of CBI wasn't appointed yet.
The bench opined the post is a sensitive one and the Centre should have made a decision by now since it was well known the former CBI boss was retiring on January 31.
