Amidst intense grilling by Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren makes a bold move by filing a police complaint against the probing authorities.
On Wednesday, CM Hemant Soren filed an official complaint against the ED officials who are questioning him regarding a land scam case. The complaint has been received at the Dhurwa police station, according to Ranchi Police.
In response to the ongoing interrogation, security has been significantly heightened around CM Soren's residence. Section 144 has been imposed, creating a tense atmosphere. The CM's political party, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, showcases support with MLAs gathering at his residence on Kanke Road.
Protesters claim that the ED's actions are deliberate harassment orchestrated by the Centre. In a show of strength, agitators express solidarity, announcing potential economic blockades across the entire state.
This is not the first time CM Soren faces ED questioning. On January 20, he was grilled for over seven hours, but the interrogation remained incomplete. The investigation pertains to an alleged 'huge racket of illegal change of ownership of land by the mafia' in Jharkhand.
In an email to the ED, CM Soren alleges a 'motivated political agenda' behind the probe, aiming to disrupt the state government's functioning. He questions the urgency to record his statement again by January 31, claiming it 'reeks of malice.
