Maharashtra withdraws ‘general consent’ to CBI: what this means, which cases it will impact.

Q. Why is this in news ?

A. The Maharashtra government has withdrawn “general consent” given to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to probe cases in the state. The decision means the central agency will have to get consent from the state government for every case it registers in Maharashtra.

Q. What types of cases is the CBI involved in at a state level?

Q. How did the CBI take up the Sushant Singh Rajput case? Will this new development have an impact on the investigation in that case?

Q. What is the difference between the Sushant Singh Rajput case and the TRP case? Can the TRP case still go to the CBI?

Q. Does this have an impact on other cases like the Bhima Koregaon case or the ED case against Deputy CM Ajit Pawar in the irrigation scam?

Q. How will this impact the day to day functioning of the CBI?
