The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has issued a look-out notice against former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajiv Kumar to stop him from leaving the country in the Saradha chit fund scam of crores of rupees. After the notice is issued, Rajiv Kumar, who is close to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, can’t go abroad because if he tries to leave India, all airport authorities will notify the CBI. Media reports said that this notice, issued on May 23, will remain effective for one year. Earlier on Friday, the Supreme Court dismissed Kumar’s plea, in which the CBI sought to increase security by arresting the CBI.
Kumar had earlier filed a petition in SC, where he demanded enhancing security from the arrest was made unless the concerned judicial court in West Bengal decides his anticipatory bail petition. Former Chief of the Kolkata Police, the Chief Justice, Security was provided for arrest for 7 days, which ended on Friday.
In February this year, the police commissioner of Kolkata Police, Rajiv Kumar, created a high-voltage drama at that time when the CBI team was stopped by the state police personnel and after that, the CBI officers of the agency were taken forcibly to the police station. However, they were released later.
