         Tags: Coal scam, HC Gupta convicted
 

NEW DELHI: A special court in New Delhi on Friday convicted former coal secretary H C Gupta in a case of coal scam.

Special CBI Judge Bharat Parashar also convicted the Coal Ministry’s then joint secretary K S Kropha and then director (coal allocation-I) K C Samaria, besides others in the case pertaining to alleged irregularities in the allocation of the Thesgora-B Rudrapuri coal block in Madhya Pradesh to Kamal Sponge Steel and Power Ltd (KSSPL).

The court will pronounce the order on the quantum of sentence on May 22.

It, however, acquitted chartered accountant Amit Goyal.

Besides Gupta, Kropha and Samaria, the court also convicted KSSPL and its managing director Pawan Kumar Ahluwalia.

During the hearing, the CBI had alleged that the application filed by KSSPL for the coal block was incomplete and was supposed to be rejected by the Ministry as it was not in accordance with the guidelines issued.

The CBI said the firm misrepresented its net worth and existing capacity. It noted that the State government had also not recommended the firm for the allocation of any coal block.

The accused, however, denied the allegations during the arguments.

In October last, the court framed charges against the accused, observing that former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was kept in the “dark” by Gupta, who had prima facie violated the law and the trust reposed in him on coal blocks allocation.

Around eight different charge sheets were filed against Gupta and the proceedings are going on individually.

The Supreme Court had recently dismissed his plea seeking joint trial of all the cases.
