Barrackpore, Sep 17 : Hiding cop Rajeev Kumar's advocates today moved an application for anticipatory bail for the ADG CID in the Barrackpore sessions judge court, minutes after a trial court rejected such a prayer, saying it had no jurisdiction.
Judge Sanjeev Taluka told Kumar's advocates that he had no jurisdiction of the case because it was a trial court for MPs and MLAs and advised them to move the district sessions court. The CBI's counsel also equipped themselves with the case diary to move for issuance of an arrest warrant of the former Kolkata Police Commissioner for not cooperating with the central investigating agency in the Sarada scam despite Calcutta high court order on Friday.
Meanwhile, the CBI wanted to know the whereabouts of the hiding cop from state authorities, including the DGP, but did not get any clue as yet, said the sources.
It said it got only the duration of Rajeev Kumar's leave for 17 days from September 9.
Desperately looking for Rajeev Kumar in the Saradha chit fund scam for the past four days, the CBI on Monday delivered two more letters addressed to the state chief secretary and the home secretary, seeking his whereabouts if he was on leave. UNI
