CBI Fails to Locate Former Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar


Sept. 27/2019 – A CBI team sent to West Bengal to apprehend former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar failed to locate him as the top cop has been evading summons in connection with the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam, one of the senior agency officials said. 

On 17 this month, the special team had come to Kolkata and searched various locations to trace Kumar but returned in empty hand finally, he said. 

The Calcutta High Court had earlier withdrawn the protection given to Kumar, who is the present Additional Director General-Crime Investigation Department, which prevented the CBI to take any legal action against him. 

He is one of the primary accused in the Saradha chit fund case that has allegedly duped thousands of people amounting around Rs 2500 crore, promising higher rates of return on their investments.
