The Supreme Court Thursday directed the CBI to hand over records of all the preliminary enquiries (PEs) lodged in the coal block allocation cases to the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) for scrutiny.
A bench led by Chief Justice R M Lodha also took note of the CBI’s submission that it will not file any closure report in the coal scandal cases without permission from the court. The bench has asked the CVC team, comprising two vigilance commissioners, to examine the records and submit a report in four weeks.
The court order came as petitioner NGO Common Cause accused the CBI of a flawed probe and said it was filing closure reports with extraneous considerations.

At this, CBI’s counsel Amarendra Sharan read out a communication received from CBI Director Ranjit Sinha. Sinha informed the court that CBI was ready to submit files relating to all PEs completed so far to the scrutiny of CVC. This will be, Sinha said, in addition to the 25 cases which were earlier submitted to CVC on account of difference in opinion within the CBI on registration of Regular Cases (RCs).
On the issue of alleged conflict of interest of CBI Joint Director O P Galhotra, Sinha’s letter said Galhotra had sent him a request for recusal from all matters, connected directly and indirectly with the PEs relating to coal blocks allocations and the consequent RCs.
