Hemant Soren approaches Supreme Court after Jharkhand HC denies bail plea

Hemant Soren, the former chief minister, has moved to the Supreme Court after the Jharkhand High Court dismissed his bail application regarding a case of money laundering related to an alleged land scam. In his case, senior advocate Kapil Sibal sought an urgent listing of Soren’s matter before a bench headed by Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud.

The bench, which includes Justices J B Pardiwala and Manoj Misra, stated that it would review the request.

Jharkhand HC dismisses Hemant Soren’s writ petition

On May 3, the Jharkhand High Court rejected a writ petition by Soren challenging his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and denied him bail, but permitted him to attend his uncle’s funeral on May 6.

In the case, Soren was arrested on January 31 after resigning as chief minister of Jharkhand, and party loyalist and state transport minister Champai Soren was appointed as his successor. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) interrogated him for seven hours before making an arrest.

Case against Soren

The ED claims that Soren illegally acquired an 8.86-acre ranch in Ranchi, which is the subject of this investigation. The Jharkhand Police have filed numerous FIRs in cases involving land scams against a variety of people, including state government officials, which prompted the investigation of money laundering.

Investigators of the ED are investigating the alleged “huge amounts of proceeds of crime generated by manipulating official records by presenting dummy sellers and purchasers as forged or bogus documents in order to acquire large parcels of land valued in crores.”
