NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today agreed to hear on November 12 a plea filed by Chief Vigilance Commission (CVC) seeking clarification if it could share the confidential reports on coal scam with former CBI official M L Sharma who is inquiring about meetings of agency's ex-Chief Ranjit Sinha.

Sharma was appointed by the apex court to inquire whether meetings of Ranjit Sinha with accused in coal block allocation scam had impacted probe or their final outcome.

The court had on September 14 allowed Sharma to access whatever records he felt necessary for the purposes of inquiry.

After court's directions, Sharma has asked CVC to make available to him its comments on the CBI's probe in each of the 254 coal blocks allocation.

He has also asked the CVC to provide him correspondence that might have been exchanged between it and the CBI on the subject.

However, the reports sought by Sharma from CVC includes some information which the anti-corruption watchdog had submitted to the apex court in a sealed cover after scrutinising the CBI probe into each of 254 coal blocks allocation.
