Meghalaya: CBI grills Kolkata police Chief, former TMC MP on 2nd day in Shillong

Shillong | February 10, 2019

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is questioning Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar for the second consecutive day in Shillong on Sunday in connection with the chit fund scam cases. Though Kumar had insisted on the questioning being videographed, reports suggest that there is no video recording being done of the interrogation.

Former TMC MP Kunal Ghosh was also questioned for upto 8 hours at the CBI office in Shillong today in connection with the Saradha Chit Fund Scam. Ghosh, who was arrested in November 2013 was granted interim bail by the Calcutta High Court in 2016, arrived at the office at 10 am, while Kumar reached half an hour later.

The questioning is being held at the CBI office in Shillong after the Supreme Court had ordered that a ‘neutral’ place be selected for the interrogation.

On Saturday, the CBI had interrogated Kumar for eight hours for “withholding and tampering important documents” in the scams.

Sources in the agency revealed that a 22-page questionnaire was prepared by the agency to question him. He has been asked to come for questioning again on Sunday to get more details on the investigation that was carried out by the Special Investigation Team (SIT), headed by Kumar.

As per sources, Kumar had insisted that the entire proceedings be recorded, leaving no scope for the agency to allege non-cooperation on his part. “He had always been cooperating with the agency. He insisted that the agency record the session so that no allegations surface against him that he did not cooperate. The agency had agreed to his request and the entire 8-hour session was video recorded,” said an officer close to him.

The CBI had claimed in the apex court that Kumar allegedly tampered crucial evidence in the Rose Valley and Saradha chit fund scam. In line with the order, the apex court had asked him to ‘cooperate’ with the officers of the CBI.
