As the high-political drama is continues in West Bengal, following a team of over 40 CBI officers made futile attempt to reach Kolakata police commissioner Rajeev Kumar, last evening, on the plea of questioning him in chit fund scams, the CBI is planning today to drag Mamata Banerjee’s government to the Supreme Court.
West Bengal authorities are suspecting that such a large contingent of CBI officers tried to enter Police Commissioner’s residents may not be simply to question him, but with an intention of arrest him. Mamata is mainly objecting they tried to enter without any valid warrant or papers on their hand, but claiming to be on a `secret mission’.
The CBI also said to be shocked with Kolkata police residence to their team, which was never seen earlier anywhere in the country. Several retired CBI higher officials are alleging that in this case CBI act was in haste. Had they obtained a court order before moving head, no one may dare to stop them.
As former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda pointing out, the CBI move gaining political prominence as their acted on the next day of Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressing an election rally in the state. In the rally, he had sent strong warning signals to the Chief Minister.
CBI interim Director M Nageswara Rao asserting that they need not obtain any warrant in such cases, alleged last night that the West Bengal police aren’t cooperating, therefore, “we will approach the Supreme Court on Monday”.
The CBI is moving the Apex court today to inform about the non-cooperation of the Bengal government and its police. The CBI has accused the West Bengal government of impeding investigation of a Supreme Court-ordered probe into two Ponzi schemes and is expected to demand action against the state government and its police.
Nageswara Rao also expressed concern over safety of their officers in Kolkata, as last night police attempted to break doors of their Joint Director’s house, with an view to arrest him. The CBI has decided to tell the top court about detention and harassment of its officers carrying out the probe is indicative of the state government’s scant regard to the rule of law.
