The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has opposed closure of several Preliminary Enquiries (PEs) registered by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the multi-crore coal blocks allocation scam.
CVC has submitted its findings recently to the Supreme Court in this regard, said official sources.
The apex court had on March 28 asked CVC to peruse the coal blocks allocation cases in which there was a difference of opinion within CBI on their closure.
CVC, which exercises superintendence over CBI for overseeing corruption cases, has reviewed files relating to these cases.
It had examined CBI’s files on closure of 25 PEs. CVC had submitted its findings on 17 PEs to the Supreme Court on April 30 and on the remaining eight on May 9, they said.

The Commission has opposed closure of CBI PEs in a “substantial” number of cases in its reports submitted on May 9, the sources said.
Of the 17 PEs, the CVC has recommended registration of regular cases on three enquiries, they said. There were different views between investigating and supervising officers on closure of these 25 PEs.
CBI has so far registered 19 FIRs to probe alleged corruption in coal blocks allocation.
The apex court’s direction to CVC had come following filing of two closure reports in March by the agency with regard to coal blocks cases. CBI’s Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Ravi Kant, who supervises the coal blocks allocation-related probe, had favoured filing of charge sheets in them.
The court, while hearing coal block cases, had in late March asked CVC, comprising Central Vigilance Commissioner and two Vigilance Commissioners, to give their suggestions whether the cases can be closed or CBI can go ahead with the filing of charge sheets.
