Former Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda’s plea seeking summoning of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and two others as additional accused in a coal scam case will be heard on September 2, a Special Court said.
The counsel for former Coal Secretary H.C. Gupta also moved an application seeking dropping of proceedings against him on account of lack of sanction to try him for the alleged offences in the case. The court fixed Gupta’s application for hearing on September 3.
Koda’s counsel also said that his plea for summoning the former Prime Minister, who was also the Coal Minister at that time, and two others as additional accused in the case, should be heard before the stage of arguments on framing of charges.
