Former Kolkata police commissioner Rajeev Kumar failed to appear before the CBI today in connection with the Saradha ponzi scam case.

Sources said the agency had given him notice to appear at 10 AM but he did not appear.

Earlier also Kumar did not appear for questioning twice despite CBI notices after the Kolkata High Court withdrew the protection given to him from arrest on Friday.

According to official sources CBI has started proceeding on other options available to it under the law.

Meanwhile, special court in Barasat today refused to hear Kumar's anticipatory bail plea.

He had moved the court today in connection with the CBI notice.

The special court judge Sanjib Talukdar refused to hear Kumar's plea, saying the court does not have jurisdiction to hear anticipatory bail prayers.

The Saradha group of companies had allegedly duped lakhs of people of 2,500 crore rupees, promising higher rates of returns on their investments.
