New Delhi | The Supreme Court on Wednesday directed the CBI Director to file an affidavit giving details about the alleged contempt committed by West Bengal police and the Kolkata police chief Rajeev Kumar in connection with Saradha chit fund scam cases.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sanjiv Khanna asked the CBI Director to provide information in support of the allegations of tampering and destruction of call data records by Kumar who was then heading the West Bengal SIT.
