The Crime Investigation Department (CID) has stepped up efforts to trace the senior IPS officer, Umesh Kumar, who remained incognito after a local court here issued a Non-Bailable Warrant (NBW) against him on Thursday.

Sources in the CID said four special teams were formed with the express job of tracing Umesh Kumar. He was not found at his residence at Yousufguda when a special team went to execute the warrant. Officials said that the search operation was taken up in coordination with the city Task Force personnel. “We met his son and informed him about the warrant,” they said.

The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court had issued the warrant after the officer failed to appear before it in connection with a forgery case. The CID officials had also kept a constant vigil at the Nampally criminal court complex on Friday.
