New Delhi: Indian Police Service officer Ranjit Sinha Monday took charge as the 25th director of the country's premier investigating agency, the CBI, but declined to comment on the controversy over his appointment.
"I don't think that there is any controversy. Government chose me and I am here," said Sinha.
"I feel very honoured, and at the same time, am also humbled at the extremely important task bestowed on me," he said.
When his appointment was announced, the Bharatiya Janata Party had questioned the manner in which the 1974 batch IPS officer was appointed to head the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) by the Congress-led government.
