Coalgate: Request for sanction to prosecute govt servants sent: CBI

The CBI on Thursday told a special court that they have submitted requests to the competent authority for sanction to prosecute public servants in connection with two cases lodged in the coal blocks allocation scam case.

The investigating officer (IO) told the court that they were awaiting the response from the competent authority and CBI’s further probe in both the cases were going on.

“It has been submitted by the IO that necessary report for considering according of sanction has been sent to competent authority but the response from the competent authority is still awaited. It has further been submitted by the IO that further investigation in the matter is also being carried out,” Special CBI Judge Bharat Parashar said.

The court had earlier refused to accept closure reports filed by CBI in the separate cases lodged against two firms, JLD Yavatmal Energy Ltd and JAS Infrastructure and Power Ltd, now known as JAS Infrastructure Capital Pvt Ltd, and others.

In the case against JLD Yavatmal Energy Ltd, CBI has filed a progress report of its probe in the matter allegedly involving Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Darda and others.

The court, on November 20 last year, had directed CBI to further investigate the matter after refusing to accept its closure report filed in the case in which an FIR was lodged against JLD Yavatmal Energy Ltd, its directors Vijay Darda, his son Devendra Darda, Rajendra Darda, Manoj Jayaswal, Anand Jayaswal and Abhishek Jayaswal and other unknown persons.
