On Monday, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raided Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain’s residence whose alleged connection with a money laundering case is under the scanner. The CBI team has reached Jain’s residence to seek clarifications from his wife in money laundering case.
In this case, the CBI had earlier questioned Jain on June 3. While in April, CBI had registered a preliminary enquiry against Jain to inquire into allegations of money laundering against him.
Jain was allegedly involved in money laundering to the tune of Rs 4.63 crore while being a public servant during 2015-16 through Prayas Info Solutions private limited, Akinchand developers private limited and Managalyatan projects private limited. Jain’s allegations also include purported money laundering to the tune of Rs 11.78 crore during 2010-12 through these companies and Indometal Impex Pvt limited.
The issue was taken to the CBI by the Income Tax Department against the new Benami Transactions Prohibitions Act. Meanwhile, the Aam Aadmi Party said that the BJP-led Central government was misusing CBI for its vendetta politics.
