The CBI on Monday informed the Supreme Court that it was in no hurry to close the coal scam case against any individual and assured that it would complete the probe by April 30.The CBI also informed the court that it was ready to file more FIRs in the six cases in three weeks.

CBI counsel Amarendra Sharan informed a Bench headed by Justice R M Lodha, “The reports stating that the CBI is all ready to close case against industrialist Kumarmangalam Birla for his alleged role in swinging allocation of coal block in Odisha in favour of his company Hindalco, is not correct.”

Submitting the latest status report before the apex court, Sharan added that the CBI would complete its investigation into the case by April 30 this year and would be ready to file chargesheets in six cases within three weeks.

The CBI had in October  2013 registered an FIR against Birla and his company Hindalco for securing the mining rights of Talebira II coal block in 2005 through dubious means.
