The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is mulling over to open a cyber crime investigation branch in Mumbai because of increasing number of cyber crime. At present Cyber crime special branch is located and headquartered in only New Delhi.
CBI Director Anil Sinha stated that Mumbai being the commercial and financial capital of India was an appropriate place to have a cyber investigation facility as the economic offences and cyber crimes were on the rise. Recently The CBI has investigated over 20 cyber related cases.
The Central Bureau of Investigation traces its origin to the Special Police Establishment (SPE) which was set up in 1941 by the Government of India. The functions of the SPE then were to investigate cases of bribery and corruption in transactions with the War & Supply Deptt. Of India during World War II. But now CBI is a federal investigative agency which can investigate most offences which affect public life in general and which have a direct bearing on the quality of life of the common man.
