In the latest developments in coal scam, after the directions of Special Court, today Central Bureau of Investigation filed its final report against industrialist Naveen Jindal, former Minister of State for Coal Dasari Narayan Rao and others.

CBI was under scrutiny by the special court for delaying its investigation and process of filing the report. It was believed that the slow process was affecting the process of trial. The report filed today contains the CFSL reports and also has a record of statements given by the witnesses to CBI.

CBI had appealed that it needed to probe the case further after the disclosures made by the chartered accountant Suresh Singhal who agreed to be the court approver. Court had accepted the plea and also agreed to remove the name of Singhal from the list of accused.
