Rajeev Kumar, a 1989-batch IPS officer is accused of being involved in tampering of evidence, and attempting to protect certain politicians from the investigation in the Rs 2,500-crore Saradha chit fund scam

The apex court has given seven days to former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar to seek legal remedies.
