The Supreme Court today directed Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar to make himself available before CBI and faithfully cooperate with the agency in the investigation of cases arising out of the Sarada chit fund scam probe.

The apex court said Kumar will appear before the CBI for investigation at Shillong in Meghalaya. The apex court also said no coercive steps, including the arrest of the Kolkata Police chief, will take place during the course of the investigation.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi also issued a notice to Kumar and sought his response before February 20, the next date of hearing on the allegations by the CBI that he was tampering with electronic evidence and that the SIT headed by him provided the agency with doctored materials.

The apex court also directed the West Bengal chief secretary, Director General of Police and the Kolkata Police Commissioner to file replies on the contempt pleas filed against them by the CBI on or before February 18.

The bench also comprising justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjeev Khanna said on consideration of replies of the Chief Secretary, the DGP and the Kolkata police commissioner, the court might prefer the personal appearance of these three authorities on February 20.

The bench said the apex court's secretary general will inform them on February 19 whether they are required to be present before the apex court on February 20.
