Central Bureau of Investigation, is a premier investigating police agency in India. Headquartered in New Delhi, India, CBI derives the power to investigate from the Delhi Special Police Establishment (DSPE) Act, 1946. During the World War II, in the Year 1941, Special Police Establishment (SPE) was formed to enquire into allegations of bribery and corruption in the war-related procurements in the Department of War, of British India. In 1963, the Special Police Establishment (SPE) was renamed by the Government of India as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and was entrusted with the responsibility to investigate serious crimes.
