ED officials reach Hemant Soren’s Ranchi house for questioning in 'land scam'

Amid heavy security cover, Enforcement Directorate officials on January 31 reached Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren’s residence in Ranchi to question him in a money laundering case linked to an alleged land scam. Legislators of the ruling JMM-led coalition have gathered at Soren’s residence here to express their solidarity. A day ago, the MLAs signed a letter of support without any name, as speculations are rife that Soren's wife will me named the CM in the event of his arrest.

Soren, 48, who is also the executive president of the ruling Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), had earlier been questioned in connection with the case on January 20.

The interrogation that day was incomplete, an official said, adding, the fresh round of questioning will start soon.

In an email to the ED on Sunday, Soren had alleged that its actions were "motivated by political agenda" to disrupt the state government's functioning, and claimed that the insistence to record his statement again on or before January 31 "reeked of malice".

The probe agency has seized Rs 36 lakh, an SUV and some "incriminating" documents during search operations at his house in Delhi on Monday.
