Uttar Pradesh and Kerala came second with six cases each, followed by Bengal and Arunachal Pradesh with five each.

Four cases were registered in Tamil Nadu, three each in Manipur, Delhi and Bihar, two each in Jammu and Kashmir and Karnataka and one each in Haryana, Chhattisgarh, Meghalaya, Uttarakhand, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Lakshadweep.

Singh said the CBI’s conviction rate during the past five years ranged from 66.90 per cent in 2017 to 67.56 per cent in 2021.

The MLAs and MPs on whom the CBI slapped cases included those from the Congress, BJP, Trinamul Congress, YSR Congress, AAP, RJD, Samajwadi Party, AIADMK, TDP, JSP and the NCP.

The CBI is under the administrative control of the department of personnel and training (DoPT) that reports to the Prime Minister’s Office.

Opposition leaders have long accused the Centre of letting probe agencies on their leaders.
