The Central Bureau of Investigation was established by a Government of India resolution dated 1st April, 1963 to investigate not only cases of bribery and corruption, but also violation of central fiscal laws, and serious crimes, besides collecting supporting intelligence.

Over the last more than six decades, the Central Bureau of Investigation has emerged as a premier investigating and prosecuting agency of the country. CBI as the National Central Bureau for INTERPOL in India also coordinates international cooperation in law enforcement.

CBI pays its respect and homage to its founder Director and has been organizing the D. P. Kohli Memorial Lecture since the year 2000. Late Dharamnath Prasad Kohli was born in 1907 in Uttar Pradesh (UP), India. After joining Police Service in 1931, he served in UP, erstwhile Madhya Bharat and Government of India. He headed the Delhi Special Police Establishment (DSPE) in 1955 to curb and control growing tentacles of corruption in public services. On creation of Central Bureau of Investigation on 1st April, 1963, he became its founder Director and continued as its Director from 1963 till 1968.

The lecture series has in the past featured highly distinguished speakers and luminaries from various fields who share their insights and experiences on pertinent topics. These lectures are intended to contribute to fostering dialogue, sharing knowledge, and advancing the understanding of challenges and solutions in the realm of law enforcement, criminal justice system and criminal investigation. The D. P. Kohli Memorial Lecture serves as a tribute to D. P. Kohli’s vision and legacy in establishing the CBI as a premier investigating and prosecuting agency and underscores the agency’s commitment to upholding integrity, accountability, and excellence in its operations.
