MADHU-KODA-jsnThe plea of ex-Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda seeking to summon former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as an additional accused in a coal scam case was dismissed today by a special court.

“The application moved by Madhu Koda is dismissed,” Special CBI Judge Bharat Parashar said.

The court had on September 28 reserved the order on Koda’s plea after the agency had opposed it saying that there was no evidence which suggests that Singh was part of any conspiracy in allocation of a coal block to Naveen Jindal Group firms.
