Coal scam: CBI Court allows Jindal to travel abroad
Congress leader and industrialist Naveen Jindal, an accused in a coal block allocation scam case, has been allowed by a special court to travel abroad for business purposes.
Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Judge Bharat Parashar allowed the plea filed by Jindal seeking the court’s permission to visit UK and Switzerland from January 16 to 23 and imposed certain conditions on him.
Jindal has been asked to inform the investigating officer and the court about his arrival in India within seven days of his return mentioning the details of places visited by him.
“He shall not tamper with the evidence, nor try to influence any witness in any manner and will not use the permission granted to him contrary to the rules,” the court said while imposing conditions.
