coal-scamNagpur: The heat of coal scam fire is gradually getting intense. A special court hearing the multi-crore Coal block allocation scam has on Friday summoned Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Darda along with 6 others as accused in case.

CBI, in its FIR lodged earlier, had arraigned AMR Iron and Steel Pvt Ltd, its directors Arvind Kumar Jayaswal, Manoj Jayaswal, Ramesh Jayaswal and Devendra Darda, son of Vijay Darda, along with unnamed officials of the Coal Ministry and other unidentified persons as accused in the case.
