CBI to approach court; arrest haunts IPS Rajeev Kumar

By IndianMandarins- 16 Sep 2019


After the court evacuated stay on the arrest of former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar (IPS:1991:WB), the CBI is now preparing to approach CBI court in West Bengal for the arrest warrant against him.


The CBI claims Kumar untraceable as he has ignored two consecutive CBI summons following which CBI wrote to DGP, Chief Secretary and State Home Secretary about Kumar’s whereabouts.


Kumar, who is wanted for questioning in the Saradha scam, had responded to the first CBI summons after the Calcutta High Court rejected his plea seeking protection from CBI arrest.


Kumar had then requested the CBI to grant him a month’s time to appear before it but the agency refused. He has since been off the radar. Kumar was part of a SIT that probed the Saradha scam before the Supreme Court handed over the case to the CBI in 2014.
