The case has been registered in connection with transfer of Rs 2.25 crore to Rao's media company by Jindal as an alleged quid pro quo for allocation of coal blocks to Jindal Steel in Jharkhand in 2008.

At that time, Rao was minister of state in the coal ministry.

Gagan Sponge Iron Pvt Ltd,

The money was 'invested' through multi-layered transactions that involved various companies.

Jindal and Dasari Narayana Rao should be prosecuted.
Jindal should be boycotted by steel fraternity as steel does not need Indian coal. Rao is an insult on Dasari.
