In the Supreme Court CBI on Tuesday told that Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar, who was leading the SIT in the Saradha chit fund scam, destroyed, destructed and tampered with material evidence in the form of call detail records (CDRs) of the prime accused and potential accused persons.
The agency said a strong prima facie case of Kumar having committed offences both under Prevention of Corruption Act and other IPC offences has been made out.
The agency also claimed that companies like Shardha, Rose Valley and Tower Group had given huge contributions to the Trinamool Congress.
The CBI, which filed an additional affidavit in pursuance to Monday’s order, said in spite of continuous insistence and follow up by it, Kumar furnished only CDRs of the prime accused on June 28, 2018.
“The CDRs of the accused, when analysed by the CBI, were found to be tampered, doctored and the material evidence had been destroyed,” it said.
Claiming that the SIT is under investigation as it was conniving with accused and potential accused to subvert the investigating process, the affidavit said there are large number of hard discs and other material still in custody of Kumar which he had collected as an investigating officer being the head of the SIT and being the functional head and day-to-day in-charge of SIT.
