Bail plea of Aam Aadmi Party minister Satyendar Jain rejected
ED filed charge sheet against Satyendar Jain in money laundering case
Minister said – keeping in custody for a long time will not serve any purpose
New Delhi. New Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain got a big shock on Thursday. The court refused to grant bail to him, Vaibhav Jain and Ankush Jain in the money laundering case. Special Judge Vikas Dhul heard the case and said that the bail plea of all three is cancelled. AAP minister Satyendar Jain had sought bail saying that no purpose would be served by keeping him in custody for a long period. Jain is the Health, Home, Energy and PWD minister in the Delhi government.
Significantly, the decision on Satyendar Jain was to come on November 16, but at that time he was not ready. Special Judge Vikas Dhul heard the arguments of all the accused and the ED before giving the verdict. Let me tell you, ED had filed a charge sheet against Satyendar Jain, his wife and 8 firms in the court. The court took this charge sheet into cognizance recently.
Jain argued during the debate
During the debate on bail in October, Satyendar Jain had argued that his only fault was that he was a minister. Otherwise no case can be made out against him. The ED had registered a money laundering case against him in the year 2017 on the basis of the CBI’s FIR. It is alleged that Satyendra Jain transferred money from here to there in 4 firms allegedly associated with him. It is alleged that Satyendra made the hawala scandal through his own Kolkata company and after that he was taken into custody.
Round-the-clock answers were given in the inquiry
According to ED sources, 57-year-old Jain gave evasive answers during the question-answer. After this, he was taken into custody from the Delhi office. Now he will appear before the court on Tuesday morning. The ED provisionally attached movable assets worth Rs 4.81 crore belonging to Ankinchan Developers, Indo Metal Impex, Prayas Infosolutions, Mangalayatan Projects, JJ Ideal Estate, Swati Jain, Sushil Jain and Indu Jain. Earlier, the CBI had also registered a case of disproportionate assets against Satyendar Jain. In the year 2018, ED had questioned him in connection with this case.
