New Delhi: In an apparent U-turn, the CBI, which had filed a closure report in a coal blocks case involving industrialist Kumar Mangalam Birla, former coal secretary P.C. Parakh and others, told a special court here on Monday that was enough evidence against the accused to take cognisance of offences.

The Supreme court appointed special public prosecutor (SPP) R.S. Cheema submitted before special CBI judge Bharat Parashar that the court can take cognisance on the closure rep-ort filed by it on October 21 as there was prima facie “evidence against the accused to show their involvement”.

Put up for consideration on the closure report on Nove-mber 25,” the judge said.
