    Coalgate: CBI submits 20 closure reports to CVC

    NEW DELHI: CBI on Wednesday 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. Today was the last day of the apex court deadline.

    The court had asked the chief vigilance commissioner and two vigilance commissioners to give their suggestions whether the cases can be closed or CBI can go ahead with the filing of charge sheets in them.

    DIG Ravi Kant Sharma, who supervises the coal scam probe along with other two officers of the same rank, had told the bench that he had given opinion for filing charge sheets in two cases in which the agency has filed closure reports on Thursday.

    CBI director Ranjit Sinha had welcomed the decision of the Supreme Court and had said the agency had done its job diligently and "we are open to whatever suggestions are made by CVC to the Supreme Court."

    The issue is simple.

    Was there any irregularities?

    If there were none, then why the shenanigan and hullabaloo keeping the country on tenterhooks?

    And because of all this, coal could not be mined and the power situation got worse and the economy floundered!

    If there are irregularities and the CBI cannot ferret it out, then it is either really a caged parrot or is totally an incompetent and moribund organisation that requires to be packed up so that the public's money is no longer squandered on them.

    So, where does the reality lie?
