ED officials in Ranchi on Wednesday started questioning Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren at his residence in a money laundering case related to the alleged land scam amid heavy security cover. Ruling Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) working president Hemant Soren was earlier questioned in the same case on January 20.

An officer said that the interrogation could not be completed that day. That day, Soren was interrogated for more than seven hours.

ED officials said that Soren is being interrogated as part of the investigation into 'a big racket of illegal change of land ownership by the mafia' in Jharkhand.

Before the ED began questioning the Chief Minister, MLAs from the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha-led alliance reached his residence here this morning. Health Minister and Congress leader Banna Gupta said that Soren is cooperating in the investigation. He also said that it is the duty of constitutional institutions to conduct such investigations “properly”.

Meanwhile, JMM supporters protested at nearby Morhabadi Maidan and some other places in protest against the ED action against Hemant Soren. A protester said, “On the instructions of the Centre, the ED is deliberately harassing our Chief Minister… We will impose an economic blockade of the entire state.”

On the ED probe against Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren, BJP MP Sanjay Seth told ANI, “Obviously there will be an investigation… Why is he running away? He was called 10 times but he did not appear… When When he ran away, he was summoned to Delhi…CM's security personnel will have to answer where the CM was for 40 hours and how he reached Ranchi from Delhi…Now only the President can take care of this state…''
