Tensions escalated in the state capital, Ranchi, as the Enforcement Directorate (ED) began questioning Hemant Soren in the afternoon. In response, security measures were heightened, and Section 144 was enforced around the residence of the now former Chief Minister. Jharkhand Mukti Morcha workers staged protests against the central agency in reaction to the developments.

Officials reported that Hemant Soren has filed a First Information Report (FIR) against Enforcement Directorate (ED) personnel. This action was taken in response to the searches conducted by the agency at his residence in Delhi on Monday.
