Notably, the central law enforcement agency will interrogate the Jharkhand CM on January 31, in the alleged land and mining scam in the state.
Earlier, the ED team on Monday went to the residences of Hemant Soren in New Delhi and Ranchi to conduct search operation, during which Rs 36 lakh in cash was recovered from the Delhi residence.
