Case against Birla, Parakh: CBI seeks time for clarifications

Court had questioned the CBI about its hurry to close the case

CBI today sought more time to give clarifications to a Delhi court in connection with its closure report in the coal block allocation case involving top industrialist Kumar Mangalam Birla and others.

Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) R S Cheema told Special CBI Judge Bharat Parashar that the DIG and SP concerned were not available and therefore, he needed some more time to address the arguments in the matter.

The court allowed the submission of Cheema and posted the matter for hearing on October 13.

The court was hearing the closure report filed by CBI in its FIR lodged against Birla, former Coal Secretary P C Parakh and others. On September 12, the court had asked the CBI why it was in a hurry to close the case.

The observation of the court had come after the investigating officer (IO) in the case said that original minutes of meeting of the screening committee, in which Birla-owned Hindalco’s application seeking allocation of coal blocks was dealt with, were “missing”.
