CBI has registered two fresh cases in connection with alleged irregularities in allocation of coal blocks during 1993-2004.

The agency has registered cases against BLA industries, Castron Technologies, Castron Mining, the MD of BLA, some unknown public servants and private persons, CBI sources said.

It is alleged that undeserving companies were given coal block allocations.

CBI spokesperson said searches are being conducted at Dhanbad, Narsinghpur (M.P.), Mumbai and Kolkata in connection with the case.
