Coal scam: CBI to drop case against Kumar Mangalam Birla
The CBI is likely to close a case against industrialist Kumar Mangalam Birla in the coal block allocation scam, an official said Monday.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had booked Birla as a representative of the Aditya Birla Group and his group company Hindalco, one of the biggest producers of primary aluminium in Asia.
The agency had registered a first information report (FIR) in October 2013 against Birla on charges of criminal conspiracy in the allocation of coal blocks.
