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.
