Coal scam: Court to consider CBI’s closure report on June 3
A special court on Tuesday fixed June 3 for considering CBI's closure report filed in a coal blocks allocation scam case allegedly involving Prakash Industries Ltd and others. "Certain clarifications have been sought. Put up for consideration on June 3," Special CBI Judge Bharat Parashar said.
CBI had earlier placed before the court all relevant files pertaining to its preliminary enquiry in the case.
The court had on March 17 directed CBI to produce all relevant files of the preliminary enquiry in the case in which the agency had filed a closure report. CBI had filed a closure report saying no prosecutable evidence could be found during its probe in the case in which an FIR was lodged against Prakash Industries Ltd and others in connection with alleged irregularities in allocation of Chhattisgarh's Fatehpur coal block.
According to CBI, the Fatehpur coal block was allocated jointly to Prakash Industries Ltd and another company by the 35th Screening Committee.
The FIR was lodged against Prakash Industries Ltd, its three officials, some officials of the Ministry of Coal and others alleging that the firm had misrepresented its net worth while applying for the Fatehpur coal block.
