Next hearing on Hemant Soren’s petition on October 13

Ranchi:  Chief Minister Hemant Soren’s petition filed against the summons of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is being heard in the High Court on Wednesday. Senior lawyer P Chidambaram and lawyer Piyush Chitresh have presented their side in the bench of Chief Justice Sanjay Kumar Mishra and Justice Anand Sen.

During the debate, the CM said that no criminal case was made against me. Nor has ED registered an FIR in this case. In such a situation, it is not clear from the agency’s summons whether he is being summoned as a Chief Minister or as an accused. This summons of ED is not right on this basis only. In this case, Assistant Solicitor General of India (ASG) SV Raju, appearing for the ED, said, it is a case of predicate offence.

Sections 50 and 63 of ED were challenged, which has been decided by the Supreme Court in the case of Vijay Madanlal Chaudhary. Now the court has given the next hearing date in this case as October 13. The ED side will be argued on October 13. After this hearing, the High Court will decide whether the summons sent to Hemant Soren is correct and as per the rules or not.

In this matter, Chief Minister Hemant Soren has also appealed that the ED action should be stopped. Chief Minister Hemant Soren has also challenged the basis of the law under which Hemant Soren is to be interrogated. ED has so far issued summons to Chief Minister Hemant Soren five times in the land scam case. The Chief Minister has sent a letter to ED in this matter saying that the matter is in court.
