Former Kolkata CP Rajeev Kumar Files Anticipatory Bail before Kolkata Court

The Ex-Commissioner of Police of Kolkata Rajeev Kumar on Monday filed an anticipatory bail before a Kolkata District & Sessions Court seeking grant of pre-arrest bail in the case lodged by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The anticipatory bail plea will be heard by the court today on September 17. Kumar filed the present application after Kolkata High Court rejected his plea seeking grant of interim protection from arrest by CBI.

As per the case filed by CBI, the former top cop of Kolkata Police is allegedly accused of tampering with the evidence and protecting few politicians from an investigation into the Saradha and Rose Valley Chit Fund Scams.

CBI claims that as being the head of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) which was probing the chit-fund scam, Kumar was responsible for destruction of evidence to protect the accused persons. The SIT was formed by Mamta Banerjee Government in 2013 and 2014 but the later on, the Supreme Court had transferred the investigation to CBI.

CBI has been running after Rajeev Kumar since a long time now seeking his custodial interrogation and non-bailable warrants in the matter. CBI has been pressing Kumar to join the investigation immediately but he is asking for grant of more time to join the same due to certain personal issues.

The former CP is believed to be close to Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamta Banerjee.

CBI has issued notices to Kumar to appear before them after Kerala High Court dismissed his plea on Friday but he is underground and untraceable since then.
