Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain was produced in Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court. Where he was questioned in court for money laundering and alleged possession of disproportionate assets, the same has been litigated. Aam Aadmi Party chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal have termed this case as fake. Satyender Jain, Delhi’s health minister, is now sent to the custody of the Enforcement Directorate till June 9, the day he was arrested by the agency in a money laundering case.
He has described the arrest of Delhi government minister Satyendar Jain as a political gimmick. He said that Satyendra Jain is completely innocent and we have faith in our judiciary. So at the same time, BJP and Congress are demanding his dismissal, that he should be removed from the post of minister. But the ED’s screws are on Satyendra Jain because he could not properly account for the money that came into his bank accounts.
In fact, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday arrested Delhi government minister Satyendar Jain in connection with hawala transactions related to Kolkata-based companies. The ED had arrested him in a case of hawala transactions involving a Kolkata-based company. Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials on Monday took Jain into custody under criminal sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) after a few hours of questioning. He alleged that the minister was “painful” in reply.
Therefore, the federal agency has made this arrest in connection with the alleged hawala deal. On the other hand, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) termed it as a political move ahead of the Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections. Because, Satyendra Jain continues to hold the post of Health, Home, Power, and PWD Minister and is a member of the Aam Aadmi Party. They are accused of receiving money through “hawala”.
According to information, the ED case of money laundering against the AAP minister stems from a First Information Report (FIR) in August 2017 by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against him and others for alleged possession of disproportionate assets. But, the ED action came a month after the agency issued a provisional attachment order under the PMLA to confiscate assets belonging to Satyendar Jain and his family members, which were worth around Rs 4.81 crore.
If sources are to be believed, Satyendra Jain was trapped in his bank account. During interrogation, Satyendra Jain could not give any account of this money to the investigating agencies. The investigating agency believes that this money came through shell companies because a bank account of Satyendra Jain was also in the hands of the investigating agencies. 10 suspicious transactions have been found from the year 2013 to the year 2015. The names of his wife Poonam and their daughter Saumya are also included in this suspicious transaction.
Incidentally, Satyendar Jain, who is also the party in charge of the upcoming Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections, has been arrested just a day before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the Himalayan state on Tuesday. Therefore, politics is also being done on this issue. Here, the CBI in its FIR has claimed that Jain purchased 200 bighas of agricultural land in the name of companies controlled by him in Delhi in the five years prior to 2018 and “laundered black money” worth several crores.
Meanwhile, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia alleged vendetta politics and said that Satyendar Jain has been arrested in an eight-year-old “fake” case. A fake case is going on against Satyendra Jain for eight years. ED has called him several times till now. The ED had stopped calling him for some time as it did not find anything against him. Now it has started again as he is in charge of the Himachal Pradesh elections.
