NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear a plea filed by Chief Vigilance Commission (CVC) seeking clarification on whether it could share the confidential reports on coal scam with former CBI official M L Sharma, inquiring about meetings of former CBI director Ranjit Sinha with accused in the coal block allocation scam.

The court had on September 14 allowed Sharma to access whatever records he felt necessary for the purpose of inquiry. Sharma then asked the CVC to make available to him its comments on the CBI’s probe in each of the 254 coal block allocations. However, the reports sought includes information which the anti-corruption watchdog had submitted to the Supreme Court in a sealed cover after scrutinising the CBI probe into the issue.

As the court room felt the tremors, the Bench headed by Justice Madan B Lokur soon adjourned the hearing to November 12.
