Hemant Soren faces ED probe: Jharkhand CM arrives in Ranchi amid ‘missing’ allegations from BJP

Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren arrived at his residence in Ranchi on Tuesday amid intense political activity around the leader. The officials of the Enforcement Directorate (ED), who were supposed to question him in the money laundering case claimed that they failed to locate the JMM leader. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) declared that the chief minister is "missing" and is “on the run" from a federal agency.

After reaching his residence in Ranchi, Hemant Soren said he was ready to depose before the ED on Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. 

The ED reached his Delhi residence on Monday to question the leader, but couldn't find him there. The probe agency then seized his BMW car and 36 lakh in cash and claimed that they had found "incriminating" documents after it searched the Delhi house of the Jharkhand chief minister. 

The Opposition BJP alleged that the chief minister is “on the run" from the ED probe and even announced 11,000 on credible information leading to his arrest. Governor CP Radhakrishnan had mentioned that he is closely monitoring the situation. "It is the job of the Governor, I am doing it. We will cross the bridge when it comes," he said.

In the interim, instructions have been given for all Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) belonging to the ruling coalition, which includes the JMM, the Congress, and the RJD, to remain in Ranchi, giving rise to conjecture about the subsequent developments.
