NEW DELHI, May 20: Former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar approached the Supreme Court on Monday seeking an extension of the seven-day period that the apex court had granted him to approach a competent court after his protection from arrest was vacated.
Kumar has cited strike of lawyers in West Bengal as the reason behind seeking an extension of the time period.
The Supreme Court had last week vacated the interim protection from arrest to Rajeev Kumar in the Saradha chit fund scam case but granted him seven days time to approach a competent court to seek legal remedies.
A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna had said that the order should not be treated as a direction to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for custodial interrogation and asked the investigating agency to act as per law.    -HT
