Kolkata, Sep 16(Agencies): The Central Bureau of Investigation on Sunday sent letters to Bengal Chief Secretary, Home Secretary and Director General of Police seeking the whereabouts of senior IPS officer Rajiv Kumar even as the former Kolkata Commissioner of Police continued to remain “untraceable and uncontestable” even two days after the Calcutta High Court lifted the shield against arrest off him.
Informed sources in the Bengal Police said Kumar, presently the Additional Director General of CID who failed to present himself before the CBI officials for the second day on Sunday after losing the protective cover against arrest on Friday, was planning to file a Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court.
After summons were sent to him on Friday, the former top cop had reportedly wrote to the CBI seeking a month’s time as he was on leave tending to his ailing wife a senior IRS official herself.
About the contents of the letters sent to the senior State Government officials, sources in the Agency said the CBI wanted to know through the letters that whether Kumar was genuinely on leave, if so when he applied for the leave, what was the reason for the leave taken and when was he supposed to join back. Information was also sought about the reason of leave taken and the address he was to be found during the leave period.
Meanwhile, senior CBI counsel RJ Dastoor on Sunday rushed to Delhi to meet the top officials. “He has been asked to visit Delhi where legal consultations will take place for further steps tomorrow,” sources said.
