Supreme Court to hear Centre vs Mamata fight today
New Delhi : The Supreme Court has fixed 10:30 Am as the time to hear a plea, saying that it would hear the parties to produce any evidence in favour or against CBI's fear of anyone in West Bengal, including the police, destroying the evidences in Sardha Chit Fund scam.
One day after CBI questioned Police Commissioner of Kolkata Rajeev Kumar, the agency reached the apex court, saying it “apprehends” Kumar is “destroying electronic evidence” and he should be directed to “immediately surrender/make himself available” for investigation.
A bench of CJI Rajan Gogoi and Justice Sanjiv Khanna remarked. "if you (CBI) can lay down any material… forget that he (police commissioner) is doing, that he is even remotely thinking, we will come down so heavily on him that he will regret it".
A news report claims that an affidavit detailing evidences against Rajeev Kumar have been prepared on Moday Evening and the same will be produced before the court on Tuesday.
In Kolkata Monday, the West Bengal government sought immediate hearing on the CBI attempt to question Kumar but the Calcutta High Court declined to take it up urgently following objection by the central government counsel and listed the matter for Tuesday.
