The Central Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday received a fresh letter from the Coal Ministry giving details of files related to coal block allocations which remain untraceable in the ministry, paving the way for filing of FIR by the agency.

CBI sources said the agency will soon take a call on proceeding with filing of case with regards to untraceable files as it received on Wednesday the list of files, which are untraceable in the Ministry.

Coal Ministry had sent a tranche of documents along with the list of files and records which have been traced. The preliminary analysis had revealed that not all files sought by the agency were provided by the Ministry.

In the communication through Attorney General, CBI had listed out several records which the ministry had claimed that it has provided to the agency but were not handed over.

CBI is looking for crucial records related to the ongoing 13 cases filed by it in connection with the coal blocks allocation scam which include the letter of Congress MP Vijay Darda recommending coal block for AMR Iron and Steel, one of the accused companies.

In the list given to the Coal Ministry, CBI has also given a list of files which include allotments made to Tata Sponge Iron private Limited, minutes of 26th screening committee, allotment to Jharkhand Ispat Private Limited, agenda form sent by the company to Under Secretary S K Kakkar.

The apex court had directed the Coal Ministry that if any document remains untraceable, then FIRs have to be lodged by the Coal Ministry with CBI within a week thereafter.
