Jamshedpur: Police have registered a case against Babulal Soren, son of JMM leader and former minister and JMM candidate from Jamshedpur Champai Soren for clashing and putting hindrance in the duty of Jadugora police which was carrying out a vehicle-checking drive near the UCIL Hospital in Jadugora on Thursday morning.
The police said Babulal Soren was in an SUV and was coming from Jamshedpur towards Ghatshila. As the police personnel on duty asked him to stop his SUV, he protested, leading the police to start checking his vehicle. But after creating ruckus, Babulal managed to go away from the spot leaving the checking of his vehicle incomplete. Babulal’s father Champai Soren is alliance candidate of JMM-Congress for the Jamshedpur Lok Sabha seat.
“ In view of elections we are keeping a strict vigil at the entry and exit point of the city. We saw an SUV heading on high speed when we intercepted and tried to stop. Babulal started abusing us. We tried our best to carry search in his vehicle but he didn’t cooperate,” said police official. He said that Soren junior is known for rude behaviour but election being nearby we have been asked to ensure proper search of vehicles but Babulal didn’t allow the team to check his car. An FIR has been filed against him.
When contacted, Babulal Soren, said, “I didn’t indulge in any unlawful activity with the traffic police officials and ready to face any inquiry”.
At the time Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) is looking forward to woo tribal voters by declaring Champai Soren as the candidate for Jamshedpur Parliamentary constituency, Babulal’s making news for bad reasons may give sleepless nights to the party. The 63-year-old sitting Seraikela MLA Champai Soren is said to close to JMM supremo Shibu Soren and party decided try its luck on him.
