More from the same article. I guess it is time the senior IPS cadre in West Bengal is also severely reprimanded, and ask to mend their ways. If they are all fine to be used as floor-mops of these politicians, they should also be told that it may not work for long. West Bengal is still part of Indian Union.From the report...Earlier, another central agency - the Enforcement Directorate - had to move court against the state police for their alleged reluctance to share documents related to the Saradha scam. The CBI had given Bengal police an "ultimatum" on submitting documents related to the scandal.

May be legal experts can give the expert opinion. But I guess NIA can still approach the judiciary to get back this person into their custody. I don't know if there is a provision to hold a person in a police (or judicial) lock up out side the state, especially if the state is not very cooperative. I remember that during IG's emergency rule politicians were housed in prisons which were far away from their mother states.

+1. Infact the alleged jail break of these Jehadis may itself be a game to help the agencies get more clues on more of the sleeper cells. Agreed that they have broken into a bank, and blasted a few bombs. But were they really major crimes? If they were minor, why not allow them to proceed further, get involved further, thus exposing their networks better? I remember that when Police Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma was killed in a shoot out, two junior Jehadis escaped. Police were blamed for it. But what later happened was that these junior Jehadis had made lots of silly mistakes which exposed their network quite a bit.
