The Supreme Court today asked the CBI to furnish evidence to justify its request for custodial interrogation of former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar, who was earlier heading the West Bengal Police SIT probing the Saradha chit fund scam case.

A bench headed by Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi asked Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the CBI, to satisfy the court that its request for seeking custodial interrogation of Kumar was bonafide and was in the interest of justice. Mr Mehta told the court that he will file the evidence against Kumar by tomorrow.

The bench listed the matter for further hearing tomorrow. The apex court was hearing CBI's application seeking custodial interrogation of Rajeev Kumar on grounds that he had given evasive replies during questioning.
