CBI to file charge sheet against WCL officers

Nagpur News: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed a complaint against Navratna Company WCL (Western Coalfields Liited), after a test report revealed substandard coal at WCL’s Mungoli Open Cast Mine.

The laboratory test was done on samples collected from the mine during a joint investigation conducted by WCL’s own Vilgilance Department, CBI’s Anti- Corruption Bureau and the Indian Bureau of Mines between 26th and 30th July.

Offences have been filed against WCL’s Wani Area CGM R C Sanodia, Manager Deepak Pandya, Sub- Area Manager MD Sabeer and Assistant Manager K Bhaskar, since it is now evident that the storing of substandard coal took place with the knowledge and consent of these four officials.

The Vigilance Department is going through the CBI report, and the company is expected to take stern action against the officials. The CBI is expected to file a charge sheet in a few days.
