February 9, 2019: Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar reached Shillong on Friday, a day before he has to appear before the CBI for questioning in connection with the central agency’s ongoing probe into chit fund cases.

Kumar was accompanied by three top state police officers, including Deputy Commissioner of Special Task Force Murlidhar Sharma. Meanwhile, Trinamool leaders and supporters staged a protest outside the CBI headquarters at CGO Complex, shouting slogans against the Centre.

The developments come days after Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee ended her three-day dharna in Kolkata against a recent attempt by CBI officials to raid Kumar’s residence. She ended the protest after the Supreme Court directed Kumar to appear before the CBI in Shillong and ordered that no coercive steps, including his arrest, will take place during the course of the probe.

A ten-member team constituted by the CBI to probe the chit fund scams reached Kolkata the same day. The officials, who are from Lucknow, New Delhi and Bhopal, were briefed about the cases in a detailed discussion with senior CBI officials. The team will be led by Joint Director for Eastern Region Pankaj Srivastava.

The CBI had alleged in its affidavit to the Supreme Court that Kumar “destroyed and tampered” with call data records of a key accused and held back evidence. CBI officials have claimed Kumar has committed offences under the Prevention of Corruption Act and the Indian Penal Code. “We have documents on the basis of which he will be questioned,” said an official. Kumar has repeatedly denied the allegations.
