In a tightly secured environment, officials from the Enforcement Directorate arrived at Chief Minister Hemant Soren's residence on Wednesday to further question him in connection with a money laundering case related to an alleged land scam. Hemant Soren, aged 48, also serves as the executive president of the ruling Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM). The chief minister had previously undergone questioning on January 20 in relation to the same case, but the interrogation was deemed incomplete, prompting this subsequent round of inquiries.
The fresh round of questioning is expected to commence shortly, as officials seek more information in their ongoing investigation. Notably, a significant security presence has been arranged around the chief minister's residence for these proceedings.
In a show of support, legislators from the ruling JMM-led coalition have gathered at Hemant Soren's residence to express solidarity with the Chief Minister amid the ongoing legal scrutiny. The situation adds to the political dynamics in the region, as the chief minister faces continued inquiries into the alleged financial irregularities associated with a land transaction.
