The agency will also be informing the top court about the status of its probe into the missing files of coal block allocations. The CBI has registered two preliminary probes to ascertain criminal conspiracy behind the missing files.
More than a dozen companies such as AMR Iron and Steel, JLD Yavatmal Energy, Jindal Steel and Power etc., have been booked in the coal scam. Of the 14 FIRs filed, 13 correspond to a period when PM Manmohan Singh was handling the coal portfolio.
“We have to see whether it was simple administrative carelessness or the files went missing so as to benefit the accused companies,” said an investigator.
