Anuj Sharma is Kolkata's new police chief

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.

CBI and Kumar to face off each other in Shillong today

By IndianMandarins 09 Feb 2019

The CBI and Kolkata police commissioner Rajiv Kumar may face off each other in Shillong today on February 9. Both of them will be exposed to each other's capability in mental maneuvering. What may eventually come out from their face-off would be keenly watched not only by millions of duped investors of subterranean chit funds that have for decades been flourishing in the eastern part of the country but the nation as a whole. The reason for the country's interest in the latest political drama is the criminal nexus between most of these chit funds and political demagogues.

 

Meantime, in the continuing battle between the central and state government, Bengal police raided the offices of Angela Mercantile Pvt Ltd in search of finding some 'dirt' about former interim CBI chief M Nageswara Rao. What the state police discovered isn't known. But Rao quickly issued a press statement, detailing his wife and her cousin's legitimate transactions with the company. He added in the statement that these transactions were duly notified to the competent authority.

 

Further, state chief minister Mamta Banerjee escalated her war of words with the central government. Speaking on the sidelines of Bengal Global Business Summit, she refuted the Centre's charge that certain IPS officers had participated in her dharna and insisted that the officers were present at the protest venue to oversee security. "I will give these five senior officials the highest state honor 'Bangabibhusan' if the Centre takes back their medals. Also, I will send a strongly-worded letter, if they send me one," Banerjee said.

CBI panel being formed to question Kolkata CP

By IndianMandarins 07 Feb 2019

In footsteps with the Supreme Court direction given on Tuesday, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has initiated the process of constituting a special team to interrogate Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar (IPS:1989:WB) in connection with its ongoing probe into several chit fund scams.

 

It is learned that CBI DSP Tathagata Bardhan from the Bureau's Kolkata zone may head the panel of officers to question Kumar in Shillong.

 

Since Kolkata CP Rajeev Kumar holds the rank of Additional Director General (ADG), an SP-rank CBI official may be present during the interrogation in Shillong.
