Prohibitory orders were clamped in key areas of Ranchi, and a three-member team has been formed to oversee the law and order situation in the Jharkhand capital, ahead of Chief Minister Hemant Soren’s questioning by the ED, officials said Wednesday.

Officers of the Enforcement Directorate are scheduled to visit the CM’s residence around 1 pm to record Soren’s statement in a money laundering case linked to an alleged land scam.

According to an official release, the prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the CrPC are effective from 9 am to 10 pm within a radius of 100 metres at key locations, including the CM House, Raj Bhavan and the ED office at Doranda,

As part of the restrictions, demonstrations, rallies or meetings cannot be held in and around these areas.

The special team is led by Finance Secretary Prashant Kumar. It also features Mines Director Arva Rajkamal and Special Branch IG Prabhat Kumar, it said.
