$37 billion Coal Scam Report of CBI was vetted thoroughly by Government before submitting to Supreme Court of India

India's official auditor CAG  had last year revealed that the lack of transparency in the allocation of coal blocks to private players resulted in the loss of a whopping Rs.1.85 lakh crore($37 billion) to the exchequer as on March 11, 2011.

During the time these mining blocks were allotted, the coal portfolio was held by Manmohan Singh (between July 2004 and May 2009)

Indian Express reported that United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government "vetted" the coal blocks allocations probe status report before it was submitted to the Supreme Court

The report said the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe report, submitted last month, had been vetted by law minister Ashwani Kumar and officials of the Prime Minister's Office.

Senior CBI officials, including director Ranjit Sinha, were summoned by Kumar days before the status report was filed.

During the meeting with Kumar, several amendments in the status report were suggested and some also incorporated by the CBI

BJP leader Sushma Swaraj said on the twitter "This is evidence of the government's pressure on CBI to save the Prime Minister,"

BJP leader Arun Jaitley told to media that system will have to seriously consider whether an SIT must take over the administration and investigation of coal scam

Always remember that CBI is not independent agency it is controlled by Government of India directly and indirectly in every type of matter and cases.


Meaning of Vetted - Investigate, check papers, documents, or persons thoroughly, esp. in order to ensure that they are suitable
