The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), functioning under the central government's Personnel and Training Department, is designated as the NCB-India. The CBI Director is the ex officio head of NCB-India. All matters relating to the NCB-India are, however, dealt with by the Home Ministry.
In 2017, the NCB-India, on Interpol requests, located four fugitives wanted by Russia, Bangladesh, the USA and Uzbekistan for various offences. These fugitives were extradited to the countries where they were wanted.
The NCB-India also pursued proactively the Red Notice requests of various Indian law enforcement authorities and located 34 wanted fugitives abroad during 2017 and succeeded in getting them arrested.
