Following is a report from the PTI:

Cuttack, Dec 6 (PTI) Close on the heels of CBI showing willingness to probe the multi-crore mining scam in Orissa, the central government has informed Orissa High Court that it is prepared to extend all cooperation to the investigating agency if the court so desired.

Deputy Controller of Regional Control of Mines of the Union government T K Rath told the court in an affidavit that the Centre would extend all logistic support to CBI to probe the mining scam.

The affidavit came yesterday in the wake of a notice issued to it by the court here while adjudicating a PIL.

At least four PILs have been filed in the High Court urging it to direct the CBI to probe the scam, rocking the state for the last couple of months.


Entry filed under: Industries and mineral resources, Mining scam.
