New Delhi: The Election Commission on Friday removed Anuj Sharma as Kolkata Police Commissioner and appointed Rajesh Kumar to the post.

Sharma who was earlier the Additional Director-General of West Bengal Police (law and order) is a 1991 batch IPS officer. He was appointed recently as Kolkata police chief after replacing Rajeev Kumar, who was at the centre of a controversy over CBI questioning him in the Saradha chit fund scam case.

Kumar recently hits the headlines for having a standoff with the CBI after the central agency officers went to his Loudon Street residence in south Kolkata to interrogate him.

In a dramatic showdown with the Modi government, a furious Mamata Banerjee began a sit-in right in front of the Metro Cinema to protest "insults" she faced at the hands of the Narendra Modi-led central government.

Later, the matter went to Supreme Court and Rajeev Kumar was asked to appear before the CBI for interrogation in Shillong.
