Keonjhar, Aug 7
The Special Vigilance Court here on Tuesday issued summons to Deepak Gupta, director of Deepak Steel and Power and four of his family members to appear before it by September 12 in the Rs 1800 crore Uliburu mining scam.
The other family members of Deepak Gupta named in the summons are Haricharan Gupta, Champak Gupta, Shanta Devi and Neetu Devi. Gupta, the power of attorney holder of BK Mohanty Mines, is accused of illegal extraction of minerals.
The State Vigilance had petitioned the Court to proclaim the five as absconders since it was unable to trace them out.
There is likelihood of the Court declaring them absconders if they fail to appear before it by September 12.
