CBI director says it will comply with court order

CBI will provide the case diary and crime file to the special court on Thursday as directed by it, the agency’s director Ranjit Sinha said here on Tuesday.

When asked about the court order, Sinha said, ‘We will comply with the court order to provide case diary file and crime file (related to probe in the Talabira coal block allocation to Hindalco).’

Top sources in the agency said it is for the court to decide whether they did the right thing by not questioning the then Coal Minister and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. They said the fact is Singh was not questioned.

The sources said the court can examine all the records and decide from it whether the decision not to question Manmohan Singh was right or wrong.

‘We will follow every order of the court,’ an official requesting annonymity said.

Special Judge Bharat Parashar on Tuesday summoned the case diary and crime file in a sealed cover and posted the matter for 27 November.

The court’s directions came after CBI submitted that though it initially felt Singh’s examination was necessary, later it found that it was not required.
