New Delhi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren has been summoned by the Central Investigation Agency for questioning. The CM has been called for questioning on Thursday. According to ED sources, several banking documents in the name of Chief Minister Hemant Soren have been recovered from the residence of arrested accused Pankaj Mishra. ED will inquire about the receipt of documents like chequebooks, passbooks etc. in the name of the Chief Minister. This is the whole matter related to illegal mining.

The main reason for issuing summons to the Chief Minister for questioning is the involvement of his Special Representative Pankaj Mishra in illegal mining and other cases besides amassing assets worth over Rs 42 crore.

This includes the recovery of two AK-47s and 60 bullets allotted to the jawans deployed for the security of the Chief Minister's residence from Prem Prakash's house, besides the reasons for posting of IAS officer Pooja Singhal, who is accused of money laundering, in the Mines Department.

The ED has collected evidence during the investigation of illegal mining in Sahibganj that Pankaj Mishra and his associates used to intimidate the district officials by taking the name of the Chief Minister in the case of illegal mining. At the same time, officers were prevented from taking action using the political clout of the CM.

During the raid in Sahibganj, the ED found an envelope from the house of Pankaj Mishra, which contained a chequebook linked to the CM's bank account. Prem Prakash, arrested in the case of illegal mining, had also mentioned his political ties during the interrogation.
