Coal scam case: Only SC to hear pleas challenging special court orders

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday said that challenge to any order passed by the special court during pendency of trial in coal scam cases will be entertained only by it.

A three-judge bench headed by Justice MB Lokur said it will not revisit the 25 July, 2014 order passed by the apex court which had said that challenge to any interim order of the special court during pendency of trial in coal scam cases will be heard only by it.

"We don't think it appropriate to revisit the 25 July, 2014 order of this court," the bench said.

The apex court's order came on a batch of pleas which have placed the issue of whether the Delhi High Court can entertain the challenge to the order passed by special court during pendency of trial in coal cases.
