During World War II Indian Political Intelligence (IPI) evolved from a police organization into a military unit and was responsible for all security intelligence operations in India and the region. The DIB acted as the competent British authority, liaising closely with its counterparts, the  Combined Intelligence Centre Iraq (CICI) at Habbaniyah, Security Intelligence Middle East (SIME) in Cairo, and Combined Intelligence Far East (CIFE) in Singapore.
