Dharna backfire: Home Ministry asks WB government to initiate action against serving officers who participated in dharna

As per reports, the centre may also take back the medals awarded to the concerned officers and restrict them from serving in the central government for a period of time.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has expressed its disapproval against serving police officers taking part in the dharna staged by the West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on 4th February 2019. The MHA has reportedly asked the West Bengal government to begin action against the uniformed officers guilty of participating in the dharna organised by the TMC chief Mamata Banerjee.

The notice comes days after the images of the Police Commissioner of Kolkata, Rajeev Kumar along with several other officials accompanying the West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee at the dharna site were shared in the media. The TMC chief had decided to sit on dharna in Kolkata on February 4, 2019, in protest against the CBI action against the Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar. CBI had gone to question Kumar after he had repeatedly ignored the summons for questioning with regard to the Saradha chit-fund scam in West Bengal.

As per reports, the MHA might also consider taking away Rajeev Kumar’s medals, may remove the names of the delinquent officers from the empanelled list and bar them for a certain period from serving in the central government.

Rajeev Kumar is accused by the CBI of obstructing their investigation by refusing their interrogation persistently and destroying evidence of the details of people behind the chit-fund scams and money-trail details.

The matter was heard by the apex court and the three-member bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi ordered the Police Commissioner to make himself available for the investigation and cooperate fully. The Supreme Court issued a notice to Commissioner Of Police Kolkata, DGP and Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government on contempt plea. The Supreme Court had enjoined the Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar to appear before the CBI in Shillong, Meghalaya as a neutral place.
