Kolkata police chief Rajeev Kumar was on Tuesday removed from his post by the Election Comission following complaints against him vy the opposition parties in poll-bound West Bengal.

"The Kolkata Police Commissioner is removed from his post. ADG (CID) Soumen Mitra will replace him," an EC source said.

EC sources had earlier said that the issue was under its consideration amid demands by opposition parties in the state for removal of Kumar.

Deputy Election Commissioner Sandeep Saxena had said a decision of the issue would be conveyed to the media by the Commission "at an appropriate time."

The poll panel had written a letter to the chief secretary of West Bengal Basudeb Banerjee, asking him to act on the issue.

The ADG (CID) Soumen Mitra has been asked to take over as the new Commissioner of Police in Kolkata Police, EC sources said.

Confirming the development, state Chief Secretary Basudeb Banerjee said, "Yes, Rajeev Kumar is being replaced by the ADG (CID) Soumen Mitra."

The BJP and Congress had recently moved the EC seeking removal of Kumar alleging that he was close to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and accused him of "snooping" on opposition leaders, bureaucrats and journalists.
