Apex court seeks CVC’s assistance in Coalgate
It asked the Chief Vigilance Commissioner and two Vigilance Commissioners to give their suggestions whether the cases can be closed or the CBI can go ahead with the filing of charge sheets in them.

The apex court passed the order after it was informed that the agency had filed closure report in two cases despite there being difference of opinion among CBI officials.

The CBI also informed the court that there are till date 20 such cases where officers differ on what further action needs to be taken.

A bench headed by Justice R M Lodha directed the agency to place the documents of all 20 cases within five days before the CVC for its perusal and the corruption watchdog will file its report in four weeks.

It said Chief Vigilance Commissioner along with other two vigilance commissioners will examine the documents and file their report in a sealed envelope on what should be done in those cases.
