Money laundering case: CBI team questions Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain's wife

The visit to Jain’s house after Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s statement was recorded by the agency over Talk to AK media campaign.

The AAP leader Satyendra Jain is accused of converting black money into white through various shell companies in the name of his wife and daughter. “Satyendra Jain has repeatedly asked that both of them be produced” but neither the income tax authorities nor the CBI have produced them, said Bharadwaj. AAP has lashed out at ruling party at the Centre saying BJP was carrying out vendetta politics. Another day, another raid!

The BJP is “misusing” the CBI and the I-T department to implicate Delhi minister Satyendar Jain, the AAP today alleged after the agency questioned his wife in connection with an ongoing inquiry into money laundering charges against him.

Jain had denied all allegations levelled against him. The Delhi minister is alleged to be involved in money laundering to the tune of Rs 4.63 crore while he was a public servant in 2015-16.

This clearly establishes that the BJP is “misusing the CBI and the I-T department to implicate” Jain, the AAP alleged. CBI now raids Minister Jain’s residence.

The visit to Jain’s house, which AAP has termed a “raid”, took place in pursuance of a preliminary enquiry registered by the CBI in April.

Jain has dismissed any wrongdoing after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) attached properties linked to him in the matter last month.

Allegations against Mr. Jain also include purported money laundering to the tune of ₹11.78 crore in 2010-12 through these companies and Indometal Impex Pvt. Ltd.
