As a matter of policy
The CBI does not entertain anonymous / pseudonymous complaints
The CBI does not take up investigation of conventional crimes like murder, theft, robbery etc. unless directed by the Supreme Court / High Courts or referred by State Governments.

This is because "police" is a State subject under the Indian Constitution and the basic jurisdiction to investigate crimes is that of State police. The CBI's power to investigate cases is derived from the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act. The CBI can investigate the offences notified under this Act in the Union Territories and with the consent of State Governments, in the States. Besides, since the CBI is a small force, administratively also it has not been considered expedient for the CBI to investigate the conventional crimes unless directed by the Supreme Court/High Courts or referred by State Governments.
