Kolkata, Feb 10
CBI will continue the questioning of Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar in chit fund scam cases on the second day today at the agency’s office at Shillong in Meghalaya.
Kumar was questioned for nearly eight hours yesterday. The CBI also called the Magistrate to be present at the questioning in case any issue arises of ill-treatment of the Police Commissioner.
The Supreme Court had, on Tuesday, directed the Kolkata Police Chief to appear before the CBI and faithfully cooperate in the investigation of cases arising out of the Saradha chit fund scam. The court had made it clear that he will not be arrested.
Meanwhile, the CBI has summoned former Rajya Sabha MP and Trinamool Congress leader Kunal Ghosh to appear before the agency for questioning in the case.
