Coal scam: CBI registers two fresh cases

New Delhi, Oct 15 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered two fresh cases against two private firms for alleged forgery and cheating in connection with its probe in the coal block allocation scam.

According to reports, the FIRs have been registered against an infrastructure and a steel company in connection with the coal block allocation controversy.

The CBI is investigating whether companies misreported their financial or technical qualifications to be granted valuable coalfields in possible collusion with government officials. It had earlier registered seven FIRs in connection with the probe.

The new cases pertain to coal block allocations during 2006-09.

The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) had asked the CBI last month to probe all coal block allocations since 1993. (ANI)
