The CBI chief would submit an affidavit in the Supreme Court on Thursday, most probably defending the probe agency regarding the CBI status report on coal scam. The affidavit is likely to assert that the report was not diluted, though shared with Union Law Minister Ashwani Kumar.The CBI sources said Ranjit Sinha, the CBI chief, would submit before the court that Harin Raval, the Additional Solicitor General who represented the agency, had overstepped his brief by informing the Supreme Court that the report was not seen by anyone in the political establishment.

Following Raval’s submission, the Supreme Court directed the CBI director to submit an affidavit.

The CBI was left red-faced after news reports said Sinha had met Kumar on March 5 and showed him the status report before submitting it in the SC.

The CBI director would be represented by advocate U U Lalit on Thursday.
