Saradha scam: Calcutta HC vacates order granting protection from arrest to ex-top cop

The court also rejected Kumar's prayer for quashing of a CBI notice that sought his appearance for questioning in the case.


The Calcutta High Court on September 13 vacated its order granting protection from arrest to former Kolkata Police commissioner Rajeev Kumar in connection with the Saradha chit fund scam.

The court also rejected Kumar's prayer for quashing of a CBI notice that sought his appearance for questioning in the case.

Kumar, who is currently the West Bengal CID Additional Director General, was part of a Special Investigation Team set up by the state government to investigate the scam before the Supreme Court handed over the case to the CBI in 2014, along with other chit fund cases.
