So far, 14 individuals, including an IAS officer from the 2011-batch and a representative from the land revenue department in Jharkhand, have been arrested as part of the probe.

Key evidence and a significant amount of cash were found and seized by the ED during searches of Soren’s official residence in Delhi. A case of money laundering was opened based on the collected evidence.
