New Delhi: CBI today handed over closure reports of 20 Preliminary Enquiries (PEs) in the coal scam to Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) for scrutinizing whether the cases can be closed or charge sheets need to be filed.
The delay in handing over the files was due to completion of all legal formalities and whether any of the documents used in these cases was required for some other case under investigation with the agency.
CBI has, so far, registered 18 FIRs in connection with its probe in the coal scam.
CBI sources said that files were sent in a sealed envelop to CVC which, in turn, will analyze and give its report to the Supreme Court within four weeks.
A Supreme Court bench headed by Justice R M Lodha had Friday last directed CBI to place the documents of all 20 cases within five days before CVC for its perusal and the corruption watchdog was asked to file its report in four weeks.
