The Supreme Court on Friday adjourned the hearing in the mining lease allotment case, involving Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren, until May 24.

“We will adjourn the matter and have it heard by Vacation Bench on May 24 (Tuesday) so we can peruse the CJI order mentioned by the learned counsel,” the SC said, according to Bar & Bench.

The apex court was hearing a plea related to probes by the CBI and Enforcement Directorate into the mining lease that was granted to the Jharkhand Chief Minister and some shell companies operated by his family members and associates.
