The Supreme Court on 25 July 2014 appointed R S Cheema as Special Public Prosecutor for trial in coal blocks allocation scam. R S Cheema is a senior advocate.

Besides, SC Bench headed by Chief Justice R M Lodha also approved the appointment of Additional Sessions Judge Bharat Parashar as a judge of the special CBI court. The special CBI court will conduct the trial on day-to-day basis.

Earlier, the SC had ordered setting up of a special CBI court to exclusively conduct trial of the coal blocks allocation scam. It had also asked the Chief Justice of Delhi High Court to nominate a judge towards this.

CBI has initiated its preliminary probe into more than 200 cases of illegal allocation of coal blocks.
