The CBI on Thursday assured the Supreme Courtthat the ongoing probe in coal block allocation scam will be completed within four months.

Meanwhile, the apex court questioned the Centre’s power to allocate coal blocks, asking under what provisions minerals are allocated by the government.

The Centre on Tuesday had rubbished the charges made in the CAG report alleging huge scam in coal block allocations and said it had put in place four sets of regulatory mechanism which had functioned well to monitor and take corrective measures.
