Enforcement Directorate Summons Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren for the Sixth Time in Money Laundering Probe

Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren, also the leader of the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), faces renewed scrutiny as the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned him for the sixth time in connection with an ongoing money laundering case. Soren had previously evaded all summons by the financial probe agency, who first called him on August 8, 19, and September 1.

Despite the repeated summons, Soren did not comply with the ED’s requests for questioning. The latest directive requires his appearance on December 12, marking another chapter in the legal tussle between the Chief Minister and the ED, raising questions about the nature of the alleged financial irregularities under investigation.
