Chit Fund: SC seeks Rajeev Kumar's response

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi issued notice to Kumar on CBI's plea and sought his response within four weeks.

The Supreme Court on Monday sought a response from the former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar on the CBI's plea seeking his arrest in the multi-crore Saradha chit fund case.

The CBI has also sought recall of the apex court's earlier order directing that no coercive action be taken against Kumar.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi issued a notice to Kumar on CBI's plea and sought his response within four weeks.

The CBI has sought a recall of the court's February 5 order, staying the arrest of Kumar in the Saradha and Rose Valley ponzi scam cases.

In its plea, the agency said the recall of the order granting Kumar interim protection from arrest was necessary "to unravel the entire gamut of the larger conspiracy in ponzi scam cases".

The CBI also sought directions to West Bengal authorities to comply with the court's earlier orders "in letter and spirit" and not to create any hurdle in the agency probe or try to "intimidate, harass and scare agency officials" probing the cases.
