Illegal mining case: ED raids premises linked to Jharkhand CM Soren's press advisor, others

Jharkhand: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) raided the premises of Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren's press advisor, officials of Sahibganj district and a former MLA as part of a money laundering probe into alleged illegal mining.

The raids come as Soren wrote to the federal agency on Tuesday, calling its summons illegal.

The chief minister said that he has already given the details of his properties. He has so far skipped six summons and this was the seventh, which the investigation agency termed his last opportunity to record the statement

Notably, the investigation agency, since 2022, has been probing a trail of Rs 100 crore of "proceeds of crime" generated from illegal mining operations in the state. 
The money laundering probe began after the ED raided Soren's political aide Pankaj Mishra and his alleged associates in July, 2022.
