"The Supreme Court has given direction to CBI and it did not come from BJP headquarters. I am saying this as the Chief Minister (Mamata Banerjee) has the habit of making unconstitutional comments and resorting to insults," Supriyo said.
Recalling Banerjee's support for Kumar, Supriyo said: "She has been doing exceptional things and had also called him (Rajeev Kumar) the best cop or something."
Also, it should not be a matter of concern whether CBI, ED or any other body probes the Saradha scam where 20 lakh people lost nearly Rs 40 crore.
"There should be a proper investigation and the culprits should be arrested," he added.
The court, however, granted seven days time to Kumar to take appropriate legal remedies.
