Delhi court to pass order on Satyendar Jain’s bail plea today

A Delhi court will pronounce on Thursday the order on the bail applications of AAP leader Satyendar Jain and two others in a money laundering case.
Special Judge Vikas Dhull, who was scheduled to pronounce the order on Wednesday, adjourned the matter, saying the order was not ready. Jain had urged the court to grant him bail, saying that no purpose would be served by keeping him in custody any longer.
The judge had reserved the order after hearing arguments of the accused persons, including Vaibhav Jain and Ankush Jain, as well as the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
The federal agency had arrested the accused in the money laundering case based on a CBI FIR lodged against Jain in 2017 under the Prevention of Corruption Act. Jain is accused of having laundered money through four companies allegedly linked to him.
Recently, the court also took cognisance of the prosecution complaint (charge sheet) filed by the ED against Jain, his wife and eight others, including four firms, in connection with the money laundering case. In the latest updates from Delhi, there has been a mass transfer of officials in the Tihar jail. After the suspension of the superintendent, there have been mass transfers of as many as 52 jail officials.
