FinMin: A complete overhaul in next 5 months?

If some top sources are to believed all four departments under Union Ministry of Finance are set to get a fresh set of departmental heads in the next five months. The Department of Expenditure, presently under ad-hoc arrangement, became headless after G C Murmu (IAS:1985:GJ) was picked up as J&K Lieutenant Governor. Union Finance Secretary Rajiv Kumar (IAS:1984:JH), Secretary, DFS, is retiring in February next year followed by Economic Affairs Secretary Atanu Chakraborty (IAS:1985:GJ) scheduled to retire April next year. Though Revenue Secretary A B P Pandey (IAS:1985:MH) may remain on turf till February 2021 but with vital figures dipping steadily the power corridors are abuzz that Pandey may be shifted to some other key departments. If that be the case the Finance Ministry may see a fresh set of faces to steer the economy which would be key to take NaMo 2.0 to its 3.0 version.

CBI corners former Kolkata Police Commissioner

The CBI has sought arrest warrant against former Kolkata police commissioner Rajiv Kumar as Tom and Jerry chase between the CBI and Kumar is continuing from long. Meanwhile, the CBI has accused him of suppressing evidence required for preparing final charge sheet in Saradha scam case. He has been asked to appear before CBI on September 20.

 

As claims CBI Kumar has not only been ignoring summons but evading arrests as well so the investigation agency had sent letters to West Bengal DGP, CS and HS to help trace Kumar. The CBI wants his custody as it will not only help gather more evidences about Saradha scam but it has also some political implications as well in a state where the saffron party at the Centre has an eye.

 

Officially Kumar is on leave till September 25. CBI conducted searches at various locations across Kolkata looking for Kumar in connection with Saradha scam

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.
