Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar who was accused by CBI for destroying evidence related to Saradha Chit Fund Scam has written to the probing agency seeking a break so that he can return to Kolkata and prepare a reply to the contempt petition filed against him and two other senior officers in the Supreme Court by February 18.

The Kolkata Top Cop Kumar is facing CBI quizzing by Central Bureau Investigation since Saturday last week in Shillong. Kumar made the request after the central investigating agency issued fresh summons to him in yet another Ponzi case on Monday.

Rajeev Kumar wrote to the CBI that he wants to comply with the Supreme Court directive. The Kolkata Top Cop in his letter stated that he is ready to cooperate with CBI and make him available for questioning after February 18, if the investigating agency wants so.

As reported by The Times of India, Rajeev Kumar in his letter also said that he has to give the charge of Kolkata Police Commissioner to his successor as per the directions of the Election Commissioner.

Kumar’s plea comes more than 24 hours after a special CBI team did a face-to-face between Rajeev Kumar and former Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh, a man whom he had himself arrested on charges of being involved in the Saradha scam and was summoned as witness this time.

Earlier on Feb 11, The Top Court refused to monitor the ongoing Saradha Chit Fund Scam Investigation.

Rajeev Kumar, Police Commissioner of Kolkata came into limelight after the CBI Officers landed into West Bengal on Feb 3 to questioned him that led to a standoff.

A standoff between Central Investigation Agency, CBI and West Bengal Police Top Brass erupted on Sunday evening over questioning of West Bengal Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar on Saradha Chit fund scam. The Whole Issue on Monday reached Parliament, Supreme Court, and Kolkata High Court as Mamata Banerjee sit-in protest against the Central Government atrocities.

The Supreme Court on Feb 5 while hearing the plea filed by Centre and CBI issued a notice to Commissioner Of Police Kolkata, DGP and West Bengal government on contempt plea. We will direct the Police Commissioner to make himself available and fully cooperate. We will deal with contempt petition later,” observed CJI. The Top Court further set February 20 as the next date of hearing in the case.
