CBI director’s affidavit refutes counsel’s claim

CBI director Ranjit Sinha admitted before the Supreme Court on Friday that the agency's status report on the coal block allocation case was shared with law minister Ashwani Kumar and senior officials of the PMO and the coal ministry "as desired by them". In his two-page affidavit submitted as per the directive of a bench led by Justice RM Lodha, Sinha apparently refuted the statement made by the CBI's counsel, additional solicitor general HP Raval, who had claimed that the report was not shared with any "political persons". This statement by the law officer had prompted the court to seek an affidavit from the CBI director, endorsing the submission that he had vetted the reports himself and that investigation details were not being shared.
