New Delhi: In trouble brewing for the Gautam Adani-led M/S Adani Enterprises, the Central Bureau of Investigation on Thursday said it has registered a case against former officials of the National Co-operative Consumer Federation (NCCF) and others over alleged irregularities in supply of coal to the Andhra Pradesh Power Generation Corporation (APGENCO) in 2010.
The CBI in its FIR has named Virendra Singh, the then Chairman of the NCCF, GP Gupta, the then MD of the NCCF, SC Singhal, the then Senior Advisor of NCCF, Adani Enterprises Ltd and other unknown public servants and others for criminal conspiracy, cheating and criminal misconduct by public servants.
According to CBI, the case was filed on Wednesday after the preliminary inquiry revealed the crime by the officials named in the FIR and the Adani Enterprises was found to be true.
The FIR alleged that on June 26, 2010, APGENCO floated a tender inquiry for supply of six lakh metric tonnes of imported coal “on free on rail destination” basis to Dr. Narla Tata Rao Thermal Station (NTTPS), Vijaywada and Rayalasaleema Thermal Power Plant (RTTP), Kadapa, Andhra Pradesh/RTPP via Kakinada-Vizag-Chennai-Krishnapatnam or any other ports.
