Ex- Congress MP Naveen Jindal, an industrialist, has been summoned by a Delhi court in connection with a coal scam case.
Mr Jindal has been formally charged by the CBI in connection with the alleged irregularities in the allocation of coal mining blocks when the Congress-led UPA was in power.
The court has also issued summons to three more persons and the Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JSPL) company, asking them to appear on September 4.
The CBI alleges that Mr Jindal's company Jindal Steel and Power Limited colluded with Minister of State for Coal Dasari Narayan Rao to influence the screening committee that allotted coal blocks, by investing more than two crores. Mr Jindal's company, the CBI says, did this in return for mining rights in a Jharkhand block.
