CBI examines Shourie and Agarwal in HZL divestment case

CBI has examined former disinvestment minister Arun Shourie and Vedanta group chairman Anil Agarwal in connection with alleged irregularities in the divestment of Hindustan Zinc Ltd (HZL)during NDA regieme.

CBI sources said the agency recorded the statement of Shourie and Agarwal last week. Shourie said that two CBI officers from its Jodhpur office had come and they asked him the reasons for implementing the policy under which HZL was disinvested.

The former minister of disinvestment said it was strange as CBI was probing the same allegations which were brought before Supreme Court and rejected by it. He said another strange point was the fact that the officers of level of SP and DSP were questioning the policy of the government.
