The Supreme Court will on Tuesday hear applications moved by the CBI alleging destruction of electronic evidence related to the Saradha chit fund scam case by the Kolkata Police commissioner.
The CBI in its petition says Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar was summoned multiple times but failed to cooperate and created hurdles in the investigation.
The CBI has reportedly alleged that it has moved the application as an extraordinary situation has arisen in which the top police officials of the West Bengal Police are sitting on a dharna .
The top court said all material or evidence has to be placed before it by means of affidavit.
“We will come down heavily on him (Kolkata police commissioner) if there’s any material to show evidence is sought to be destroyed,” the CJI said.
“When did you file your plea? This morning and we’ve already read it. In fact, we were late to the court by a few minutes because we were reading your applications. And there’s no evidence of what you’re saying right now,” the CJI added.
