Kolkata, September 19

The CBI has issued a fresh notice to former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar asking him to appear before it on September 20 as it continued to search for him at various locations across Kolkata in connection with the Saradha ponzi scheme scam, officials said on Thursday.

A CBI team branched out at the IPS officers’ mess at Alipore in Kolkata and a five-star hotel on EM Bypass “enquiring” about Kumar during the day, they said. 

The probe agency on Thursday also moved a city court seeking an arrest warrant against Kumar in connection with the scam. It has set up a special team to trace Kumar, a 1989-batch IPS officer, who allegedly “evaded” the agency’s notices to appear before it in connection with the Saradha Ponzi scheme case, the sources said. They added that Kumar did not appear for questioning despite CBI’s notices. — PTI
