Special Judge Bharat Parashar took cognizance of the chargesheet filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation last month and issued summons to Koda and the others in the case for February 18.
The other accused in the case are former coal secretary H.C. Gupta, former Jharkhand chief secretary A.K. Basu, Vini Iron and Steel director Vaibhav Tulsyan, two government officials – Basant Kumar Bhatacharya and Bipin Bihari Singh – and alleged middleman Vijay Joshi.

The CBI filed the chargesheet in December last year in the case against Koda and the others under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
