Hemant Soren’s attorneys are advised by the Supreme Court to file a case with the Jharkhand High Court instead of interfering with his arrest. Hemant Soren the former chief minister of Jharkhand was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on Friday and the Supreme Court declined to intervene in the money laundering case. Instead, the top court instructed his attorney to appeal to the Jharkhand High Court. On behalf of Soren, the top court asked Kapil Sibal,” Why don’t you look at the high court Sibal informed the court that the matter concerned an arrested chief minister.

The highest court declared that all people have access to courts and that they are constitutional courts. After being questioned in relation to a money laundering investigation into a land scam case, Soren was taken into custody by the central agency on Wednesday. After appearing in court on Thursday, he was placed under judicial custody for the entire day. The JMM leader had claimed that his arrest was art of an elaborate plot by the Centre to influence the outcome of the Lok Sabha elections, which are scheduled for several months from now. Soren begged the supreme court to rule that his arrest was unjustified, arbitrary and a violation of his basic rights.

When presenting Soren to a special PMLA court in Ranchi on Thursday, the Enforcement Directorate asserted that the former CM of Jharkhand state had unlawfully acquired and was purportedly in possession of 12 adjacent 8.5-acre of  land in Ranchi. These parcels were allegedly acquired by a large syndicate that was involved in property grabbing. The investigation into Soren by the central agency is a result of the raids it conducted in 2023 against Bhanu Pratap Prasad, a sub-inspector in the state’s revenue department who was allegedly involved with the land mafia. 5DThe sub-inspector is accused by the ED of organizing schemes to obtain and hide a number of properties illegally, including those that Hemant Soren has unlawfully acquired and possessed.

One day after the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) chief was arrested on money laundering charges in relation to an alleged land dead, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) claimed that former Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren had illegally acquired and possessed 12 adjacent land in Ranchi dimensioning 8.5 acres. These parcels were obtained by a large syndicate involved in grabbing properties. The assertion was made by the federal agency when presenting Soren to a special PMLA  court in Ranchi. The court placed the JMM leader under judicial custody for a day, despite the fact that the ED had requested a 10-day custody by the ED under the PMLA for alleged stealing land in Jharkhand without permission.
