The Central Bureau of Investigation on Thursday summoned Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar to appear before it on February 9 in connection with its probe into Sharada chit fund case, officials said.
A senior CBI official requesting anonymity told IANS that Kumar has been asked to depose before it on February 9 in Shillong.
In an order issued on February 6, the CBI attached 10 officials, including one Superintendent of Police (SP), three Assistant SPs, two Deputy SPs and three inspectors from different zones to Kolkata's Economic Offence Wing of the agency from February 8 to 20.
It also said the orders were taken after the approval from the CBI Director.
