A special court on Saturday allowed Vigilance Bureau to interrogate former Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda in jail in a disproportionate assets case.

Vigilance court judge Binoy Kant Khan granted permission to interrogate Koda from December 5 to December 12 during day time after the Bureau moved a petition in this regard.

The court also allowed the Bureau to question former minister Kamlesh Singh who is in jail facing the same charges.

Both Koda and Singh had been remanded to 14 days judicial custody on November 30 by the court after their arrest on the same day.

The case is based on the FIR filed on July 2 by Rajiv Sharma, with the Vigilance Bureau accusing Koda and some of his ex-cabinet ministers of amassing assets disproportionate to their known sources of income.
