Former Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren Moves to Supreme Court, Can he get bail?

Former Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren has taken his case to the Supreme Court of India, contesting his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with an alleged land scam.

Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal brought up Soren’s appeal before a bench led by Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud today, requesting an urgent hearing. Sibal pointed out the proximity of the upcoming elections in Jharkhand, scheduled for May 13.

This move comes after the Jharkhand High Court rejected Soren’s plea a few days ago, having reserved its decision on his petition back in February.

CM Hemant Soren land scam, money laundering case 

Last year, in September, the Supreme Court told Chief Minister Soren to go to the High Court. He wanted to cancel two papers from the Enforcement Directorate. These papers were about a law called the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, of 2002.

Soren thought these papers were not right and broke the law. He said they went against his basic rights as an Indian citizen. These rights are in the Constitution of India. Soren is saying that the central government is misusing their power. It was also a way to hurt the government of Jharkhand, where he is the Chief Minister.

He thought the Central Government was using its people to hurt the government of Jharkhand. This is not fair and goes against democracy. Soren wanted the Supreme Court to listen to him and protect his rights. He hoped for a good decision that would help India and the government of Jharkhand.

Jharkhand High Court approved provisional bail for Hemant Soren

On May 3, the Jharkhand High Court decided against Soren’s request to cancel his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). The High Court said there were many documents showing reasons for Soren’s arrest. So, it wasn’t right to say the ED arrested him for no reason.

Before this, the Supreme Court asked the ED to reply to Soren’s plea. Soren wanted temporary bail because the High Court took a long time to decide on his case.
