The West Bengal CID today arrested another police officer, considered close to former IPS officer Bharati Ghosh, for his alleged involvement in misconduct and extortion from civilians, an official of the investigating agency said.
He was held from the Midnapore police lines.
Gold jewellery, documents and a large sum of cash were seized from the residences of Ghosh.
Police carried out the raid following a court order, after a person complained that some police personnel had forcefully taken money from him last year, the official said.
Ghosh, who was the West Midnapore SP, resigned from the service after she was transferred to a less significant post - the commandant of the third battalion of the state armed police - in late December last year.
