ED response seeking Satyendar Jain's bail plea in money laundering case

NEW DELHI: The High Court of Delhi on December 1 sought a response from the Enforcement Directorate on jailed AAP Minister Satyendar Jain's bail plea in the money laundering case.

Justice Dinesh Kumar Sharma directed the Enforcement Directorate to file its response within a fortnight and the matter has been listed for December 20.

On November 29, Jain had moved to HIgh court challenging a trial court's order denying him bail in the alleged money laundering case filed by the agency.  Earlier, his bail was denied by special judge Vikas Dhull on November 17 and he is presently lodged in Tihar jail.

In connection with the matter, the ED submitted a charge sheet against him and others to a court on July 27. It was said that Jain amassed assets that were out of proportion to his known sources of income while serving as a Minister in the Delhi government between February 14, 2015, and May 31, 2017.

On May 30, Jain was arrested by the central agency in accordance with Section 19 of the 2002 Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

On the basis of the FIR filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation in 2017 under Sections 13(2) read with 13(1)(e) of the PC Act, 1988 against the Minister, his wife Poonam Jain, and Ajit Prasad Jain, Sunil Kumar Jain, Vaibhav Jain, and Ankush Jain, the ED launched a money laundering investigation.

Earlier, the Enforcement Directorate had attached immovable properties worth Rs 4.81 crore, provisionally belonging to companies beneficially owned and controlled by Jain on March 31, 2022.
