When the Supreme Court is monitoring the investigation of the Coalgate scam, it is travesty of justice that CBI, even before getting into the bottom of the case, has been acting in haste as is evident from the latest FIR naming industrialist Kumar Mangalam Birla and former coal secretary P.C. Parakh (“The Besieged”, October 28). This has not only exposed their biased attitude in implicating persons without credible evidence but also their inability to nail the real accused. So Parakh was right in saying that if CBI could name him as an accused in the FIR, the Prime Minister should also be held responsible for approving his recommendations.
