Coal scam: Former Secy convicted

Coal scam: Former Secy convicted

New Delhi, May 19

A special court here today convicted ex-Coal Secretary HC Gupta in a coal scam case. Special CBI Judge Bharat Parashar also convicted then Joint Secretary KS Kropha and then Director KC Samaria in the case pertaining to “irregularities” in the allocation of Thesgora-B Rudrapuri coal block in Madhya Pradesh to KSSPL.

Edit: Miscarriage of justice

The court will pronounce the quantum of sentence on May 22. The court, however, acquitted chartered accountant Amit Goyal in the case. Others convicted included the firm KSSPL and its managing director Pawan Kumar Ahluwalia. The CBI had alleged that the application filed by KSSPL for the coal block was incomplete and was supposed to be rejected by the ministry. — PTI
