CBI wants autonomy and get rid of Home Ministry control to have fair investigation free from external influence.
In the present Lok Pal bill, in corruption cases, CBI is to do the investigation based on the preliminary inquiry report by the Lok Pal. CBI does not like this as they feel it as playing second fiddle. This is a wrong perception. Since they are getting the reports from Lok Pal there cannot be any external influence in their investigation and they are nearing their goal of autonomy. The time limit for completion also should not worry them as it is quite possible in the absence of any external pressure.
