The Supreme Cout has ordered an investigation against the former director of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Ranjit Sinha for his alleged involvement in the coal scam. Sinha allegedly used his office as the chief of the investigating agency to help those accused in the case. The apex court has ordered to set up a special investigation team to investigate the charges.

A panel chaired by former CBI special director M L Sharma had been appointed to investigate Sinha’s involvement in the scuttling of the probe. The panel has called Sinha’s meeting with the accused persons “completely inappropriate”. In its report, the panel said, “prima facie there was an attempt” on Sinha’s part “to influence the investigation” in this case.
