Hindustan Times reported that the Central Bureau of Investigation on Monday expanded the scope of its probe into the coal block allocation scam to include all mines allotted to private firms since 1993.

CBI spokesperson Dharini Mishra told HT the investigating authority had expanded probe’s scope following a direction from the Central Vigilance Commission.

The CVC’s recommendations to the CBI comes days after coal minister Mr Sriprakash Jaiswal endorsed and forwarded a letter by seven Congress MPs who had demanded a comprehensive probe into all captive coal blocks allocated since 1993.

This means investigating the allotments by the BJP led National Democratic Alliance regime from 1998 to 2004 as well as those given during United Front rule in 1996-98.
