JHARKHAND: Today, the Apex Court adjourned the hearing in the mining lease allotment case, involving Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren, until May 24.
Supreme Court in its order said, “We will adjourn the matter and have it heard by Vacation Bench on May 24 (Tuesday) so we can peruse the CJI order mentioned by the learned counsel,”
The apex court was hearing a plea related to testing done by the CBI and Enforcement Directorate into the mining lease that was granted to the Jharkhand Chief Minister and some shell companies operated by his family members and associates.
Yesterday, a bench consisting of Chief Justice N V Ramana and Justice Hima Kohli took note of the submissions brought forth by senior advocates Kapil Sibal and Mukul Rohatgi who had talked about the severity of the case.
Meanwhile, the Jharkhand High Court is scheduled to continue hearing the matter on Thursday, PTI reported.
