Supreme Court withdraws interim protection given to ex-Kolkata top cop

The Supreme Court on Friday withdrew interim protection given to former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar from arrest by the CBI over his alleged role in destroying evidence in Saradha chit fund case. The top court has given seven days to Kumar to seek legal remedies. Sources in the CBI said that the agency officials have not seen the order yet. The future course of action will be decided only after going through the top court’s order, the sources said. It is still not clear whether the probe agency officials will interrogate Kumar or wait till the end of 7-day period.
