New Delhi:  CBI may question Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik for  writing a letter of support in favour of Hindalco, an Aditya Birla group company, after its bid for coal mines was rejected by Coal Ministry.

According to CBI sources, Naveen  Patnaik's letter was found during a probe into the alleged irregularities in allocation of coal block—Talabira II—to Hindalco. This coal field was meant for Public Sector Undertakings.

CBI said while no final decision has been taken as to who all would be questioned, the sources said the Chief Minister may be examined only if a need was felt to seek his views on the reasons for recommending coal blocks to Hindalco.
