New Delhi (India), Feb 7 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has summoned Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar for questioning on February 9 in the case related to Saradha chit fund scam.
On February 5, the Supreme Court had directed the 1989-batch IPS officer to appear before the CBI in connection with the scam. The apex Court had said that no coercive step should be taken against Kumar, who will now appear before the probe agency in Shillong in Meghalaya.
The Supreme Court directive had come against the backdrop of a ‘dharna’ organised by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata in protest against the CBI’s move to enter Kumar’s office without any warrant from the competent court.
Chief Minister Banerjee on Tuesday ended her ‘Save the Constitution dharna’ which she had started on Sunday night after the CBI’s attempt to arrest Kumar.
Kumar has been serving as Kolkata’s Police Commissioner since January 2016. He is said to have not responded to the summons from the CBI in connection with the probe into the Rose Valley and Saradha ponzi scams. (ANI)
