SC asks CBI to probe Hindalco on allegations of bribery

New Delhi, Oct. 12 : The Supreme Court on Monday directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to probe Hindalco over allegations of bribery and to act as per rules if there is any wrongdoing.

The move comes after the CBI discovered a diary allegedly detailing kickbacks from Hindalco to the Environment Ministry along with Rs.25 crores found in the company’s premises.

The apex court has directed the CBI to conduct this probe within the provisions of the law.

The CBI had not probed this diary earlier, saying that there was no connection between the diary and the coal block allocation scam. (ANI)
