Kolkata, Jul 15 (UNI) Calcutta High Court will begin hearing of police chief Rajeev Kumar's lawsuit on Wednesday, nearly one and a half month after the he filed a plea seeking protection from arrest in connection with the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam case.
Justice Asha Arora said hearing of the plea will begin July 17 on a regular basis.

The bench had earlier extended interim protection from arrest by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to Kumar till July 22.

Mr Kumar had moved the High Court praying quashing of a CBI notice which asked him to appear before the agency in connection with the multi-crore chit fund scam.

A district sessions court in the city's outskirt had earlier turned down his anticipatory bail plea seeking an extension of protection from arrest and recommended he approach the Calcutta High Court or trial courts in Bengal to "seek appropriate remedy".

Kumar, who headed the state police's Special Investigation Team that probed the Saradha scam, is accused of tampering with evidence in the case.

An unprecedented chain of events had unfolded on 3 February when a CBI team reached Kumar's residence to question him.

The team was detained and taken to a police station and was later released.

The Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had also visited Kumar's official residence and staged an indefinite sit-in to protest against CBI raid at his residence.
