New Delhi:

The Supreme Court has directed Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar to make himself available before the CBI and cooperate in Saradha scam probe. It said Kumar will appear before the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for investigation at Shillong in Meghalaya. The top court also said no coercive steps, including the arrest of the Kolkata Police chief, will take place during the course of the investigation. A bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi also issued a notice to Kumar and sought his response before February 20, the next date of hearing on the allegations by the CBI that he was tampering with electronic evidence and that the SIT headed by him provided the agency with doctored materials. The court directed Kumar to make himself available before the CBI and "faithfully cooperate" in the Saradha scam probe. 

Meanwhile, Mamata Banerjee said it is a moral victory. “We have great respect for the judiciary and all institutions. We are so grateful. We're so obliged,” she said while reacting to the Supreme Court order.
