Kolkata Police about its chief attending office regularly, led to a huge drama

KOLKATA :4/2/19: The assurances of Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and the Kolkata Police about its chief attending office regularly, led to a huge drama this evening: Officers of the Central Bureau of Investigation turning up at the Park Street home of police chief Rajeev Kumar – only to have the police guards stationed there refuse them entry.
Senior police officers rushed to the spot and virtually shepherded the CBI team away from the residence — first to the Park Street Police Station and then to the local Shakespeare Sarani police station. The state police chief and the entire brass have reached Mr Kumar’s home along with the Chief Minister and consultations are on.

Senior Trinamool Congress leader Derek O’Brien tweeted, asking if BJP was planning a coup by sending 40 CBI officers to the home of the police commissioner.

Rajeev Kumar, who headed the special investigation team probing the Saradha and Rose Valley Ponzi scams that had surfaced in Bengal in 2013, was asked to help with the investigation when several key documents of the cases allegedly went missing. Over the last two years he had received several summons for questioning, CBI sources said.

This afternoon, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had tweeted describing Mr Kumar as the best police officer in the country. She also accused the BJP of engineering the controversy and media reports that Mr Kumar may be arrested for evading questioning in the chit fund case.
