CBI to hand over files to CVC today

CBI on Sunday said it would be handing over closure reports of 20 preliminary enquiries (PEs) in a sealed envelope on Monday to Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) for looking into the matter and taking a call if the cases merit closure or more charge sheets need to be filed.

Welcoming Supreme Court’s Friday order in coal blocks allocation cases, CBI director Ranjit Sinha on Sunday said, ‘It’s a welcome decision. We have done our job diligently and we are open to whatever suggestions are made by CVC to SC.’

An apex court bench headed by Justice R M Lodha had on Friday had directed the agency to place the documents of all 20 cases within five days before CVC, following which the corruption watchdog would file its report in four weeks. DIG Ravi Kant Sharma, who supervises the coal scam probe along with other two officers of the same rank, had told the bench that he had given opinion for filing charge sheets in two cases wherein the Bureau filed closure reports on Thursday. The CBI director said the agency would be open to scrutiny of the decision taken by the CVC.
