In-camera hearing of Kol ex-top cop’s bail plea starts
Kolkata: The Calcutta high court on Wednesday began incamera proceedings of CID additional director-general Rajeev Kumar’s bail plea. The development coincided with the CBI shooting off a letter to
West Bengal DGP Virendra, asking him on Kumar’s whereabouts since his sanctioned was till September 25.
In the afternoon, Kumar’s counsel Debasish Roy moved a division bench of Justices Sahidullah Munshi and Sub
leave hasis Dasgupta, and pleaded for in-camera proceedings. The HC granted his plea.
The CBI, sources said, has also written to the state top cop, seeking to know where Kumar is. According to CBI sources, they were earlier informed by the DGP that Kumar was on leave till September 25. Kumar had also sent an email to the CBI, seeking reprieve till his leave ended. But that didn’t stop the CBI from issuing fresh summons. These summons were issued both for Saradha scam and Rose Valley chit fund cases.
