A Delhi court today acquitted Bajrang Ispat Pvt Ltd, its director and another official in a case related to alleged irregularities in the allocation of the Dumri coal block in Jharkhand in 2006.

Special judge Bharat Parashar absolved all the accused in the case, saying the evidence was not sufficient to proceed against them.

The company, its director Ramesh Kumar Aggarwal and authorised signatory Anil Jain were accused of cheating, under section 420 of the Indian penal Code (IPC), and criminal conspiracy, under section 120B of IPC.
 
Bajrang Ispat Pvt Ltd was allocated the Dumri coal block in Jharkhand in 2006. Subsequently, the aforesaid company was amalgamated with another firm, TP Sao and Sons. This is the first coal block allocation scam case since 2014 where all accused have been discharged by the special CBI court.
