CBI director Anil Kumar Sinha is set to retire in a less than two weeks. But Power Circuit learns the government is unlikely to appoint a regular successor immediately.

As per the selection guidelines laid down by the Lokpal Act (through amendments made to the Delhi Police Special Establishment Act), the CBI director must be selected by a panel comprising the Prime Minister, Leader of Opposition and Chief Justice of India or a Supreme Court judge appointed by the CJI.

This is what we learn: The Centre is likely to appoint the seniormost special director, RK Dutta, as officiating director till Chief Justice TS Thakur retires in January. No paper on appointing Sinha's successor has ben moved so far though he has only a few more days left in office.
