Ghosh, Special Superintendent of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), was one of the members of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that initially probed the scam. As per sources, Ghosh submitted some documents that the agency sought from him.
On May 17, a three-judge bench headed by the CJI had withdrawn protection from arrest granted to Kumar by its February 5 order. However, the court had said his protection would continue for seven days from May 17.
Rajeev Kumar's protection that began on May 17, will end on Friday - May 24. Earlier on Monday, Kumar’s lawyer mentioned the matter for urgent listing before a vacation bench comprising Justices Indira Banerjee and Sanjiv Khanna.
Kumar has rushed to the top court seeking indefinite extension of shield from arrest on the ground that work in trial courts in Kolkata and the Calcutta High Court has been paralysed due to the ongoing strike by lawyers.
