The agency has launched search operations across 16 locations in Hyderabad, Satna, Secunderabad, Vishakhapatnam, Jaipur, Rourkela and Delhi at the premises of these companies.

The sources said the companies allegedly misrepresented their networth to claim eligibility for getting coal blocks.

The new cases pertain to coal blocks allocation during 2006-09 in which the CBI had earlier registered seven FIRs in connection with the probe.
