AAP's Satyendar Jain sent to 14-day judicial custody in money laundering case

Satyendar Jain, a member of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and a minister in Delhi, was denied bail by a court dealing with corruption and other crimes committed by lawmakers on Wednesday.

The Special Judge Vikas Dhull denied the AAP leader’s bail application.

While Jain’s bail was requested on the basis that he was innocent of any wrongdoing, the Enforcement Directorate argued that he was a “very influential politician” who converted “black money into white money” and tampered with evidence.

Jain was initially charged under Sections 13(2) (criminal misconduct by public servant) and 13(e) (disproportionate assets) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Case was filed based on the allegation that Jain acquired immovable properties in the names of multiple individuals between 2015 and 2017 that he was unable to adequately account for.
