CBI tried to force its way in: Kolkata Police Commissioner

New Delhi: CBI tried to forcefully enter his residence on February 3 without valid papers, Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar told the Supreme Court on Monday.

West Bengal Chief secretary Malay Kumar De, DGP Virendera Kumar and Mr. Kumar in separate affidavits, countered CBI’s allegations against them: the allegation against them by the CBI was of obstructing the apex court-ordered probe into ponzi scams including the mutli-crore Saradha chit fund case.

The three officials said they were tendering an “unconditional and unambiguous apology” in case the court prima facie felt their action was contemptuous as alleged by the CBI.

The officials accused CBI of mounting vague allegations without evidence.  They cited the example that no police officer was part of the protests organized by Trinmool Congress Party.

However, CBI via Solicitor-General Tushar Mehta, had presented before Bench led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi that uniformed police officers had taken part in the protest.  

The apex court is scheduled to hear the case on February 20.
