Coal scam: No evidence against ex-PM Manmohan Singh, CBI tells court

New Delhi,septmber 28: CBI on Monday opposed in a special court the plea of ex-Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda seeking summoning of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and two others as additional accused in a coal scam case, saying the application was "devoid of any merits".


Special Public Prosecutor R S Cheema told the court that the records of the case not even prima facie suggest that the former PM, who was also Coal Minister at that time, was part of any conspiracy in allocating coal block to Jindal Group firms.

"The present application is a device worked out by accused person so as to not only delay the present trial but also deviate the court from the case," Cheema told Special CBI Judge Bharat Parashar.
