Setback for AAP Satyendar Jain, Delhi Court Rejects Interim Bail Plea

Satyendar Jain

Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court has denied the plea of senior AAP leader Satyendar Jain, an alleged accused in a money laundering case, who sought interim bail for four weeks to care for his injured wife and ailing daughter.

As per Jain’s application, his wife Poonam Jain, also an accused in the case, has fractured her right foot and requires “constant personal attention and care.” Additionally, their younger daughter is suffering from some ailments and needs continuous care.

The application stated, “The wife of the applicant (Jain), apart from taking care of herself and managing other affairs, is also unable to care for their younger daughter due to her present situation. There is no one else in the family to support her, as the other daughter is married, staying at her matrimonial home, and has a 7-month-old child to take care of.”

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested Jain, a former cabinet minister in the Arvind Kejriwal government, on May 30, 2022, on charges of laundering money through four companies allegedly linked to him. The arrest was based on a CBI FIR registered against him in 2017 under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
