New Delhi : The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday told a special court that it would file a revised charge sheet on September 30 in a coal blocks allocation scam case allegedly involving Navbharat Power Pvt Ltd and others.

Special CBI Judge Bharat Parashar was informed by special public prosecutor R S Cheema that the agency would file the revised final report in the case which would be comprehensive and would address the lacunae pointed by the court earlier. The court noted, in its order, that Cheema has informed the CBI Director that investigating officers (IO) should include in the final reports the reasons for arriving at a conclusion for filing a charge sheet or closure report in a particular case. The court fixed the matter for further proceedings on September 30. CBI had earlier filed charge sheet against Navbharat Power Pvt Ltd (NPPL), its Managing Director and Vice-Chairman Harish Chandra Prasad and its Chairman P Trivikrama Prasad in the case. The charge sheet was filed against NPPL and its officials for offences under sections 120-B (criminal conspiracy) read with 420 (cheating) of IPC for allegedly misrepresenting facts, including inflated net worth, to acquire coal blocks.
