The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) investigating the coal scam to list the names of their respective officials. The apex court has asked both the central investigative agencies to tell the court which officials are needed in the investigation of this case (coal scam).
The court said that the remaining officers who are on deputation can be sent back to their home cadre. In fact, in the coal scam case, the ED has filed an application in the Supreme Court seeking transfer of 42 officers. The application states that deputation of 42 officers is ending with the ED. So these officers should be transferred. Earlier, the Supreme Court had ordered that the transfer of officials investigating the coal scam case would not take place without the permission of the court.
