SC asks WB police chief to appear before CBI; Mamata claims moral victory


The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar to appear before the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the Sarada chit fund scam case and Rose Valley ponzi scheme.
The bench, headed by the Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi, said that Kumar cannot be arrested and that no coercive action will be taken against him.

The court will take up the issue on February 20. Rajeev Kumar will appear before CBI in Shillong, Meghalaya, as a neutral place.

The case was adjourned to 20 February.

Mamata Banerjee claimed ‘moral victory’ after SC barred CBI from arresting Kumar. The West Bengal Chief Minister has been on a dharna for the past two days against the CBI action. She has raised the slogan ‘Save the Constitution’ and the leaders of the Opposition parties in the country have rallied around her.
The unprecedented stand-off between the Narendra Modi government and the Mamata Banerjee government in West Bengal stretched to the third day today as an angry Banerjee continued her sit-in, emboldened by the support from Opposition parties from various states.

The SC also issued contempt notices to the State’s Chief Secretary, DGP and Rajeev Kumar and sought their response by 20 February.
