The Central Bureau of Investigation has filed a fresh plea in the Supreme Court, seeking an arrest of former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar and also demanded to conduct a custodial interrogation of the top cop in the Saradha chit fund scam.

The CBI has told the apex court that a lot of evidence in the case has gone missing and as Rajeev was heading the Special Investigation Team to look into the case, he must be arrested for further questioning .

News agency ANI tweeted over the issue, “CBI files fresh plea in Supreme Court seeking permission to arrest, and for custodial interrogation of ex-Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar. CBI wants top court to withdraw its February 5 order granting protection to Rajeev Kumar from arrest.”
