The Supreme Court Friday dismissed a plea of former Kolkata Police Commissioner seeking extension of protection from arrest in the multi-crore scam case.

Kumar was earlier granted protection from arrest by the apex court for seven days which ends today.

A vacation bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra said Kumar can approach the Calcutta High Court or the trial court there for seeking relief.
