New Delhi: A special court on Tuesday summoned Congress leader and industrialist Naveen Jindal in connection with the allocation of a coal block in Madhya Pradesh.
This comes after the court took cognisance of a CBI chargesheet.
Besides Jindal, the others summoned are the company, Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JSPL), its former Director Sushil Maroo, former Deputy MD Anand Goyal and CEO Vikrant Gujral for alleged cheating and criminal conspiracy in the allocation of Urtan North coal block in Madhya Pradesh, PTI reported.
