The IAS Association has called the conviction of three IAS officers, including former coal secretary H.C. Gupta, in the Coalgate scam, “unfortunate” and “unfounded”.

A Delhi court Friday convicted the three — Gupta, 1982 batch officer K.S. Kropha and 1993 batch officer K.C. Samria — in a scam relating to allotment of coal blocks in West Bengal during the previous UPA regime. While Gupta and Kropha have retired, Samira is a serving officer.
