After facing a massive setback, Mamata Banerjee tries to downplay by claiming a ‘moral victory’

Mamata Banerjee was opposed to the CBI team being sent to question Rajeev Kumar. Kolkata police had obstructed and detained CBI team when they had gone to question Kumar.

Suffering a massive setback after the Supreme Court directed Rajeev Kumar to appear before the CBI, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee tried to downplay the embarrassment by claiming a ‘moral victory’ while expressing her respect for the judiciary, reports ANI.

Taking a cue from the Congress party, Mamata Banerjee speaking to the media said, “I think it’s our moral victory. We have respect for the judiciary and This order was passed earlier also that they can call mutually. Rajeev Kumar never said I will not be available. If you need any clarification, you can come.”

“They came to arrest. The court said no arrest. We are grateful for the order. We welcome the verdict. Our case is strong. We never said we will never cooperate. We have sent five letters.” said Mamata after the SC order on Kolkata top cop Rajeev Kumar.

A three-member bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi ordered the Police Commissioner to make himself available for the investigation and cooperate fully. The CJI further clarified that Kolkata Police chief Rajeev Kumar cannot be arrested by the CBI. The Supreme Court issued a notice to Commissioner Of Police Kolkata, DGP and Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government on contempt plea. The court has asked to file their response by 20th February. The Supreme Court has said that the Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar will appear before the CBI in Shillong, Meghalaya as a neutral place.

The Central Bureau of India (CBI) on Monday had filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court alleging that there are several incriminating material and correspondence collected during the investigation by the CBI against the senior police officials as well as senior politicians.

The affidavit further states that while the SIT was carrying out the investigation, crucial evidence such as laptops and mobile phones were handed over to the main accused in Saradha scam case, Sudipto Sen, by the investigating officer of West Bengal Police working under direct supervision of Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar.
