In July this year, the Supreme Court appointed probe committee which was coal block allocation scam had indicated that there were evidence against Sinha. The panel found that Sinha had tampered with the proceedings of the coal scam probe and his decisions were influenced by meeting with the accused.
Appearing for Sinha, senior advocate Vikas Singh had refuted the allegation saying the entries in the register or the diary were dubious or fictitious as the former CBI director was not in the national capital on many of those days. The top court reserved the order to decide on what action to be taken against Sinha after the panel’s finding.
