Regarding his arrest, Soren described the day as a dark chapter in India's history.

On February 2, a court under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) remanded him to the custody of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for a period of five days.

The ruling MLAs from the JMM-Congress alliance, who were relocated to a private facility in Hyderabad, Telangana, due to concerns about potential poaching, returned to the state capital, Ranchi, prior to the vote.

Champai Soren was sworn in as the chief minister on February 2.
