New Delhi, Feb 4: A confidential report prepared by West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi over the prevailing situation in the state due to the CBI and Kolkata Police face-off, submitted to Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Monday.

Earlier in a day, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh called up Tripathi to be apprised of the facts of the unfortunate and unprecedented situation of officers of a Central Investigating Agency being manhandled, detained, intimidated and obstructed.

Following this, the Governor summoned Chief Secretary and Director General of Police and asked them to take immediate action to resolve the situation.

Meanwhile, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee continued her sit-in protest in Kolkata for the second day over the Central Bureau of Investigation’s attempt to question Kumar in a ponzi scheme scam.

On the other hand, the Trinamool Congress supporters staged a protest and put up rail and roadblocks in several parts of the city and districts.

The CBI officials visited the top cop’s official residence at Loudon Street on Sunday but they were stopped by city police.

The drama intensified near Kumar’s residence around 7 pm, as three deputy commissioners of city police and some officers of the anti-rowdy section reached the spot.

The discussions between the city police officers and those from the CBI also triggered some scuffle, following which the local cops were seen bundling the probe agency men into three vehicles which headed for the Shakespeare police station.
