Coalscam: Court to consider supplementary report next month
New Delhi: A special court today fixed May 1 to consider the CBI’s supplementary report filed in a coal blocks allocation case allegedly involving Vikash Metal and Power Limited (VMPL) and others.
During the hearing, the court sought some clarifications from the investigating officer regarding the further probe conducted by the agency in the case.
“Certain further clarifications sought. Put up for consideration on supplementary final report on May 1,” Special CBI Judge Bharat Parashar said.
The final report was filed by the agency on April 7 in pursuance to court’s order of October 15 last year refusing to accept the CBI’s closure report and directing it to further probe the case.
The case pertains to alleged irregularities in allocation of Moira and Madhujore (North and South) coal blocks in West Bengal to VMPL.
The agency on March 10 had informed the court that it had received the approval of competent authority on its final report of further probe into the case.
The court had earlier directed CBI to expeditiously submit the final report on its further probe into the case allegedly involving VMPL and its officials in which they are accused of making false claims relating to land allocation to get undue advantage in the coal block allocation.
The FIR in the case was registered in September 2012.
CBI, however, had later filed a closure report saying that charges against VMPL or its directors or even against public servants could not be substantiated during the probe.
