ED Seizes BMW Linked to Congress Leader Dheeraj Sahu Amidst Growing Troubles for Former Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren

Amidst the increasing troubles of former Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren, an important revelation has come to light regarding the anonymous BMW car seized during the ED raid. The car’s connection with Congress leader Dheeraj Sahu has been exposed as it is registered in the name of Gurugram-based company Bhagwan Das Holdings Limited, which is owned by Sahu. The car was acquired on October 16, 2023.

Before the arrest of Hemant Soren, ED had raided his Delhi residence, during which crores of rupees and two cars including an anonymous BMW were seized. The investigation was ongoing, and the ED had earlier raided premises linked to Dheeraj Sahu, leading to the recovery of several hundred crores of rupees, even as the machines brought in to count the notes had broken down.

After this revelation, BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia tweeted and highlighted the connection between the BMW seized from Hemant Soren’s Delhi residence and Congress MP Dheeraj Sahu’s house in Manesar. Emphasizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s commitment to root out corruption, Bhatia mentioned the income tax seizure of Rs 352 crore from Sahu’s company.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Congress’ Rajya Sabha member from Jharkhand, Dheeraj Prasad Sahu, for questioning in a money laundering case. Sahu attracted attention when the Income Tax Department seized Rs 351.8 crore in cash during a raid against Odisha-based Boudh Distillery Pvt Ltd, promoted by Sahu’s family.

Official sources revealed that the ED wants to question Sahu about his alleged links with Soren and the BMW SUV seized from the JMM leader’s house in Delhi. Additionally, the ED raided Sahu’s premises in Kardarpur village in Gurugram and two locations in Kolkata, on suspicion of Sahu’s involvement in the alleged benami ownership of the vehicle.

On the other hand, Soren was arrested by the ED on January 31 on charges of money laundering related to illegal land acquisition and encroachment.
