Rishi Kumar Shukla, who was recently appointed director of Central Bureau of Investigation, has asked his officers to write to him every Friday if they had any professional or personal problems, officials in the agency familiar with the director’s new initiative said.

Shukla was appointed the CBI director on February 4, replacing Alok Verma, who in January refused to take up his next assignment as director general, fire services and civil defence, after being removed from the CBI by a high-level panel headed by the prime minister. Verma had been embroiled in a long-running internal feud with his deputy Rakesh Asthana last year.

The fight between Verma and Asthana had led to divisions within the CBI and created rival camps within it.

“The director has asked his officers to write to him about any problems that they are facing. Even the junior-most officer or those at the cutting edge level from across India can send their query or write about their problems. It will be addressed. So far, at least 40 such letters have been received,” said a CBI officer on condition of anonymity.
