Breakdown of Constituent machinery in Kolkata

  • CBI wants to question Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar in connection with missing documents relate to chit fund scam cases in West Bengal where (allegedly) members of Ruling TMC are involved
  • Kumar has failed to answer to summons from CBI
  • 15 members of CBI that approached his house to question Kumar have been detained by Kolkata cops after a scuffle
  • West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee rushed to the Loudon Street residence of Kumar in central Kolkata to support him

Rajeev Kumar was head of special investigation team probing the Saradha and Rose Valley Ponzi scams. Mr Kumar was asked by the central agency to help with the investigation when several key documents of the cases allegedly went missing. As per CBI they have been summoning Kumar for over two years.

Earlier Kumar also missed a meeting with Election Commission over security arrangements in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee took the fall for absence and apologized to Chief Election Commissioner on Kumar’ behalf. “He (Kumar) is now on leave. If the CEC says so (antagonised), I am sorry for that, said the CM when asked about the entire episode.

However, in the light of today’s events it is now being conjectured by various local media outlets (not us) that the CEC meeting was missed by Kumar to avoid the CBI.
Given CBI reports directly to the Prime Minister, a case of malefied intention is being made by Mamata Banerjee against PM Modi.

Meanwhile the senior most members of West Bengal Police have reached the venue, the CM is calling it an attack on federal structure and the CBI is likely to move Supreme Courtof India against the state police for acting against its officers in Kolkata investigating Kumar in in pursuit of orders to probe in ponzi scheme by the top court. Meanwhile the CBI team has been released and has returned.
