He is accused of destroying evidence in the multi-crore rupees Saradha chit fund scam case. Recently, the Supreme Court had ordered him to cooperate with the probe agency after the CBI had alleged that he ignored its summons.
The direction followed the recent unprecedented bundling out of a team of CBI officers, which went to interrogate Kumar at his official residence, into a car by Kolkata Police.
