New Delhi: The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has sought a detailed report from the CBI over the Centre's interference in its probe into the coal blocks allocation scam.

The CBI has also been asked to submit its latest status report to the Commission, official sources said.

The CVC, which exercises superintendence over the CBI in matters related to corruption, has expressed unhappiness over the whole issue of interference by a political functionary and government officials, the sources said.

"The Commission will soon hold a meeting with CBI Director Ranjit Sinha to take stock of the agency's probe in the matter," the sources added.

On Wednesday, the Apex Court had examined a nine-page affidavit filed by CBI Director Ranjit Sinha alleging that Law Minister, officials of PMO and Coal Ministry vetted the investigating agency’s status report on coal scam probe. “Probe report is not a progress report to be shared with the government and its officials. The heart of the report was changed on the suggestions of government officials,” the SC had observed.
