Money Laundering Case: SC Adjourns Hearing of AAP MLA Jaswant Singh’s Plea

Money Laundering Case

The Supreme Court has adjourned until July 1 the hearing of a plea filed by Punjab AAP MLA Jaswant Singh Gajjan Majra challenging his arrest and remand by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a money laundering probe linked to a bank fraud case.
A vacation bench comprising Justices Vikram Nath and SVN Bhatti deferred the case’s hearing after counsel representing the probe agency requested an adjournment.
Earlier, the apex court had denied interim bail to the Punjab AAP MLA to campaign during the ongoing Lok Sabha polls. Following the dismissal of his plea challenging his arrest by the Punjab and Haryana High Court on May 24, Majra approached the Supreme Court.
In May 2023, the CBI had conducted raids on premises associated with Majra regarding an alleged bank fraud amounting to Rs 40 crore. Subsequently, in September 2022, the ED had raided multiple premises linked to him as part of the money laundering investigation and had seized Rs 32 lakh in cash, along with mobile phones and hard drives.
