Illegal Mining Case: Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren has suffered a major setback. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has rejected his appeal. According to the information received from the sources, the CM had written a letter to the ED and appealed to call him for questioning a day earlier i.e. on November 16, instead of November 17. On this, the ED rejected the appeal due to technical difficulties.
Let me tell you, in the illegal mining case, while sending a second summons, the ED has asked CM Soren to appear on November 17. Earlier in this case, the ED had called Soren for questioning at the ED office on Airport Road on 3 November. After this summon, Hemant had asked for three weeks time. After this, the ED had fixed a new date of 17 November. Hemant then asked for time to appear on November 16, a day before the scheduled time, but the ED rejected his demand.
Earlier three weeks time was sought
Earlier, when ED had called Soren for questioning, he had asked for three weeks time. Soren had written a letter to the investigating agency saying that he has a busy schedule, so he needs three weeks’ time. The ED had also written a letter to the Police Commissioner of Jharkhand asking him to make proper security arrangements before questioning.
Court has taken cognizance of the charge sheet
The ED had recently filed a prosecution complaint (charge sheet) in a special court in Ranchi against Soren’s close aides Pankaj Mishra and Bachchu Yadav and Prem Prakash, who are also said to be close to the Jharkhand CM. The court has already taken cognizance of the charge sheet. The ED said that during the investigation, 47 searches were carried out on multiple dates across India, as a result of which Rs 5.34 crore in cash was seized.
