Anuj Sharma, a 1991 batch IPS officer, has taken over from Rajeev Kumar as the new police chief of Kolkata. Earlier, he was the Additional Director General (law and order) of West Bengal Police.


Rajeev Kumar, who was questioned by the CBI in connection with the Saradha and Rose Valley scam cases, was transferred as Additional Director General (ADG) and Inspector General of Police (IGP) Crime Investigation Department or CID. He was the police chief of Kolkata for three years and his transfer was due before the general elections scheduled in May.


The change of guard in Kolkata Police comes just days after Rajeev Kumar returned from Shillong, after a five-day grilling by the CBI in the chit fund scam.
