The CBI has filed a fresh plea in Supreme Court seeking arrest and custodial interrogation of former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar in the Saradha Chit Fund scam.

In its application, the CBI urged the Apex Court to modify its earlier order giving protection to Kumar from arrest and other coercive action.

On February 5, Supreme Court had said that the probe agency should not take any coercive step against the former Kolkata top cop. The CBI has accused Kumar of not revealing things and said it would be better if he is questioned in the probe agency's custody.

The CBI has sought removal of 'No Coercive Action' clause against Rajeev Kumar.  The probe agency said a lot of evidence has gone missing in the case.

Rajeev Kumar was heading the Special Investigating Team (SIT) of West Bengal Police which probed the Sharda Chit Fund scam. It was later handed over to the CBI.
