Hemant Soren did not get bail from Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has ruled against former Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren in the money laundering case involving the purported land scam. Today, the Supreme Court heard a petition contesting Hemant Soren’s arrest. On Monday, May 13, 2024, the court ruled that due to the seriousness of the allegations, Soren could not be granted bail only because of the Lok Sabha elections.

“Since the allegations are serious, the ED will not give orders on your (Hemant Soren) petition against the arrest without hearing it,” Justice Sanjeev Khanna stated during the hearing. We are unable to assist you with this if there is an election.
