The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) interrogated Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar for a second day in Shillong, capital of the Indian state of Meghalaya, on Sunday in connection with the chit fund scams.
On Saturday, the CBI quizzed Kumar for eight hours for "withholding and tampering important documents" in the scams, reports India based news agency IANS.
Kumar arrived in Shillong on Friday evening from Kolkata via Guwahati after the Supreme Court, while hearing the matter on February 5, directed him to join the CBI probe in Shillong, a neutral place.
He was accompanied with three other senior Kolkata Police officers - Additional Police Commissioner Javed Shamim, STF chief Murulidhar Sharma and CID Chief Praveen Kumar Tripathi.
"There is no question of not cooperating. He has cooperated before and is doing now too. We are here because of the Supreme Court order," Kumar's legal counsel, Biswajit Deb told the media on Saturday night.
Meghalaya Police is providing adequate security cover to Kumar while the CBI office at Oakland has turned into a fortress with the Meghalaya Police Special Force 10 guarding it.
