Court denies bail to Satyendar Jain in money laundering case

 NEW DELHI: The bail application of Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain, who has been in the custody of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) since May 31 in an alleged money laundering case, was denied by a court here on Saturday. The bail request was denied by special judge Geetanjali Goel.

After hearing the ED and defence counsel's arguments on June 14, the special CBI court in the national capital reserved its decision on the bail application. The Minister's custody to the ED had been extended by two weeks just a day before.

The same bench had transferred Jain to the agency's custody until June 9, a day following his detention, which was later extended to five days. 

He was taken to the Enforcement Directorate headquarters when he felt uneasy outside the court and was eventually hospitalised. He was taken to a local hospital after complaining of uneasiness when leaving the Rouse Avenue Court shortly after the June 9 court session.

Jain, his wife, and others have been charged with violating the Prevention of Corruption Act by the CBI. 

The ED temporarily attached immovable properties worth Rs 4.81 crore belonging to firms controlled and beneficially held by the Minister on March 31. The ED raided multiple locations belonging to Jain, his wife, and accomplices on June 6, alleging that they had either directly or indirectly assisted him or participated in money laundering schemes. During the raid, cash worth Rs 2.85 crore and 133 gold coins weighing 1.80 kg were recovered.
