Former Kolkata cop Rajeev Kumar’s anticipatory bail plea rejected

The Alipore District and Sessions court on Saturday rejected the anticipatory bail plea of former Kolkata police commissioner Rajeev Kumar, who is evading the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) summons in connection with the Saradha chit fund scam case.

Rajeev Kumar had filed the bail plea on Friday, a day after a city court had said that the CBI did not need a warrant to take him into custody in the Saradha case.

The former Kolkata police commissioner, who is currently the ADG of the CID, had failed to get relief from the Barasat district and sessions court on his anticipatory bail application in the chit fund scam case.

The CBI had moved the Alipore court on Thursday, seeking an arrest warrant against the former city police commissioner.

The additional chief judicial magistrate had disposed of the CBI’s application, saying that the agency did not need an arrest warrant as the Supreme Court and the Calcutta High Court had already lifted the bar on his arrest in the case.
