Aditya Kumar’s suspension comes just two days after the economic offences unit of Bihar registered a case against him and his associate who called up the state director general of police SK Singhal posing as the Patna high court chief justice Sanjay Karol and advised Singhal to scrap a case registered against Kumar. On Monday, the Bihar police said the man accused of making the phone call, Abhishek Agrawal had been arrested.
