The ED had sought the remand of Hemant Soren for another 4 days. ED alleges that Hemant is not cooperating with the investigation.

According to the ED, Hemant Soren was shown a WhatsApp chat with his associate Binod Singh, which Soren not only refused to sign but also denied having any knowledge about, concealing the facts. . The agency had obtained almost 539 pages of WhatsApp chats of Soren with Binod Singh, which not only contained evidence of government land grab talks but also exposed a web of transfer postings of officers.

ED suspects that Soren has also earned huge amount from transfer posting. Apart from this, ED has also found a new WhatsApp chat of 201 pages which is going to add to Hemant Soren’s troubles.

What’s new in Chat?
According to the ED, on April 6, 2021, Binod Singh sent a map on WhatsApp of the land acquired from Hemant Soren. The banquet was to be held on 8.5 acres of encroached land, there was no large piece of land left in the area, so Hemant Soren, with the help of Revenue Sub-Inspector Bhanu Pratap, seized it by preparing fake documents. Bhanu Pratap is also in ED custody, so ED is now planning to question Bhanu Pratap again before Hemant Soren. When Hemant Soren was asked for his phone number, he refused to give his phone details, ED has got the WhatsApp chat details of this phone.
