Coalscam: CBI files original documents in court in JIPL’s case
New Delhi: CBI today filed in a special court some original documents pertaining to a coal blocks allocation scam case involving Jharkhand Ispat Pvt Ltd (JIPL) and its two directors.

The court had April 1 also said that for the purpose of investigation in other cases, photocopies of these original documents should be retained by the agency.
“The original files bearing MR No. 139/2012 (original of D-20) and MR No. 232/2012 (original of D-22) as brought by the Malkhana Moharrar be retained in the court with the ahlmad,” Special CBI Judge Bharat Parashar said.
During the day’s proceedings, the court heard a CBI plea on admission and denial of documents by the accused.
CBI, in its plea under section 294 of the CrPC (no formal proof of certain documents), had said that the accused may be called upon to admit or deny various documents to curtail the necessity of examining all prosecution witnesses.
The process of admission or denial of document by JIPL’s Director R S Rungta, an accused in the case, was carried out today.
The counsel representing JIPL and its director R C Rungta, a co-accused in the case, requested the court that process of admission or denial of documents regarding them be conducted tomorrow.
The court allowed the submissions of the defence counsel and fixed the matter for tomorrow.
