The Department of Criminal Intelligence was the central domestic and foreign intelligence organisation in India under the British Raj.[1] It was set up in April 1904 under Sir Harold Stuart on recommendations of H.L. Fraser,[citation needed] following the report of the 1903 Police Commission instituted by the then Viceroy of India Lord Curzon.[1] It remained the most important intelligence organisation in India until the end of the Raj in 1947.
