ActIT Jammu, Projects, Java,, C# Training Jammu
NEW DELHI, June 19 (Agencies): Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's advisor T K A Nair will soon be called by the CBI to record his statement in the coal blocks allocation scam case even as the agency summoned as accused former Coal Secretary H C Gupta and quizzed two former PMO officials.

CBI sources said agency will soon call Nair to record his statement as witness in connection with alleged irregularities in the allocations made during 2006 to 2009.

In a related move, CBI has asked former Coal Secretary H C Gupta, who recently resigned as member of Competition Commission of India, to appear before it for questioning as an accused in the case on Thursday.

The agency is likely to question him about the clearances for the allocation of coal blocks given by Screening Committee which was chaired by him on several occassions.

Meanwhile, the agency has recorded the statements of two officials--Vini Mahajan and Ashish Gupta--who were posted in the Prime Minister's Office during 2006 and 2009, the sources said, adding they had been questioned as witnesses in the case.

During that period, the Prime Minister was handling the charge of Coal Ministry.

Mahajan, a 1987-batch IAS officer from Punjab cadre, was a Director with the PMO during the period and has now been repatriated back to the state where she is Principal Secretary level officer.

Gupta, an IPS-officer of 1989-batch from Uttar Pradesh cadre, who was the vigilance officer in the PMO, has also gone back to his cadre.
