The shareholders alleged that despite coming on time for the meeting the official entrusted with recording the attendance shut down the system and refused to register any more shareholder's names.
There was also allegation that a few shareholders were manhandled by officials.
Coal India officials including chairman Narsing Rao, in a bid to pacify the shareholders, assured them the allegations would be looked into.
The meeting resumed only after the chairman's intervention.
