On Tuesday, after a special court refused to hear Kumar's anticipatory bail plea, he moved Barasat District Sessions Court seeking for bail.

The West Bengal Director General of Police (DGP) Virendra Kumar has responded to the CBI's letter seeking direction to Kumar to join the Saradha probe.

Reportedly, the DGP has told the CBI that an official communication has been sent to the official residence of Kumar and his response is still awaited. The DGP also added that Kumar has gone on leave from September 9 to September 25.
