Supreme Court to hear Hemant Soren’s plea against ED arrest tomorrow

Ranchi: The Supreme Court is set to hear the plea filed by former Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren challenging his recent arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a money laundering case. The hearing is scheduled for Friday, as reported by media sources.

Hemant Soren’s legal representation in this matter is being handled by prominent lawyers Kapil Sibal and Abhishek Manu Singhvi. They presented his case before a bench led by Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) officially arrested former Chief Minister Hemant Soren on Wednesday evening, shortly after his resignation from the top post.

Hemant Soren voluntarily stepped down from his position as Chief Minister of Jharkhand while undergoing questioning by the ED in connection with a money laundering case linked to an alleged land deal in the state.

Following his resignation, Transport Minister Champai Soren, a seasoned leader of the ruling Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, is set to assume the responsibilities of the Chief Minister’s office.

Hemant Soren’s arrest stemmed from allegations related to an alleged land scam, occurring just moments after he met with the Governor and tendered his resignation from the top government position.

The upcoming Supreme Court hearing is expected to shed light on the legal aspects of this case and determine the course of action moving forward.
