Ghaziabad, April 26 (IANS) CBI Director Ranjit Sinha Friday defended his meeting with Minister of State for Personnel V. Narayanasamy the day before, asserting he would meet whoever he felt the need to.

The CBI director was in Ghaziabad to attend the investiture ceremony of the agency's cadet-sub inspectors at the CBI Academy.

Ranjit Sinha met Narayanasamy Thursday, a day before filing an affidavit in the Supreme Court over the CBI's status report on the coal blocks allocation case.

The agency earlier submitted to the court its status report on the coal block investigations March 8, but said it was shared with the political executive.

Sinha spent about half an hour at Narayanasamy's Tughlak Crescent residence Thursday.

The ministry of personnel, public grievances and pensions is the administrative ministry in-charge of the CBI, and is headed by the prime minister.
