"The agency may register two to three FIRs soon," a senior official said. The agency has registered 14 FIRs and three preliminary enquiries (PEs) to probe coal blocks allocation scam. CBI is looking into allocation made between 2006 and 2009.
CBI is in the process of closing one of the PEs, in which it was probing alleged irregularities in Anil Ambani's ADAG group run Ulta Mega Power Project (UMPP) in Sasan, Madhya Pradesh citing a policy decision vetted by empowered Group of Ministers (eGoM). No further PE in the matter is likely to be closed, the official said.
The preliminary enquiry was registered on the directions of Supreme Court which had asked the CBI to probe 14 issues which included supply of low floor buses by Tata motors to Tamil Nadu government, grant of spectrum and alleged market manipulations and hammering of stocks by Unitech.

CBI sources said it has come to the light that use of surplus coal from the Sasan UMPP was approved on two separate occasions by two EGoMs. They said since it was a policy decision, CBI was not likely to question it.
