Coalscam: Seeking sanction to prosecute Ministry of Coal official, says CBI

CBI today informed a special court that administrative approval has been obtained for sending records to the competent authority for considering grant of sanction to prosecute a Ministry of Coal official for his alleged role in a coal blocks allocation case.

The CBI’s investigating officer (IO) said that necessary documents and records of the case would be sent to the competent authority within a couple of days.

The agency’s move came after the court on January 30 had said that former Minister of State for Coal Santosh Bagrodia, ex-Coal Secretary H C Gupta and MoC official L S Janoti had allegedly committed criminal misconduct and facilitated AMR Iron and Steel Pvt to unlawfully obtain a coal block.
