New Delhi, Jan 20 (IBNS): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has recorded Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's statement in connection with the coal blocks allocation case, media reports said.

"Although CBI officials confirmed that Mr. Singh’s statement had been recorded, they remained tight-lipped over when exactly the agency approached him.The former Prime Minister’s statement has been recorded following a direction by the Special CBI Court last month," The Hindu reported.

The coal scam had sprung into headlines after the Comptroller and Auditor General's (CAG) report on coal block allocation estimated a loss of Rs 1.86 lakh crore to the national exchequer owing to irregular allocations.

The CAG named 25 private companies as beneficiaries of coal block allocations in various states. They included companies like Essar Power, Hindalco, Tata Power, Tata Steel and Jindal Steel and Power Ltd.

The allocations date back to the time when Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was holding the portfolio.
