ED summons Jharkhand CM in money laundering case

New Delhi, November 02 (KMS): Amid allegations by the Opposition that Narendra Modi-led government is using probe agencies and Indian forces to harass the political opponents, the Enforcement Directorate today (Wednesday) summoned Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren for questioning in a money laundering case.

The ED has summoned Hemant Soren for questioning in the money laundering case linked to alleged illegal mining in the state. He has been asked to appear before the federal probe agency at its regional office in state capital Ranchi on Thursday.

The ED had earlier arrested Soren’s political aide Pankaj Mishra and two others – local muscleman Bachhu Yadav and Prem Prakash – in this case.

Several opposition parties have said that the Modi government is misusing the probe agencies and armed forces to suppress the dissent in the country.
