Police Commissioner K. Jayaraman removed punished after arresting corrupt CEO

IAS officer Godala Kiran Kumar, posted as the district magistrate of West Bengal's Malda district, was arrested Saturday on the charge of siphoning funds from the Siliguri Jalpaiguri Development Authority (SJDA) while serving as its CEO.

During his tenure as the CEO of the SJDA from September 2011 to March 2013, Kiran Kumar allegedly siphoned off Rs.80 crore and is a prime accused in the scam involving Rs.200 crore.

The probe panel in its report held that most of the charges were true and the corruption was estimated at Rs 200 crore.

On Friday, police questioned him for seven hours.
On Saturday morning, Siliguri police commissioner K Jayaraman ordered his arrest.
Kumar was produced before a Siliguri court and sent in police custody for four days till December 4.

After the arrest of Mr. Kiran Kumar Siliguri Police Commissioner K. Jayaraman was removed from his post for "exceeding his power" and making the arrest without informing the Mamata Banerjee-led state government.

Chief Secretary Sanjay Mitra told to media that Jayaraman exceeded his powers in arresting the Indian Administrative Service officer without taking permission from the state government. "Procedurally, before taking such a big step, either the permission of the state government is required But nothing was done in this regard and we feel he (Jayaraman) exceeded his brief and transgressed his powers," 

This is another case which clearly shows that still we are living under British Raj system established by British people for the benefits of rule makers.

India needs to change all laws
