The Principal District and Sessions Court of Rouse Avenue Courts on Thursday reserved the order on the Enforcement Directorate petition seeking the transfer of a money laundering case related to Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain.
The Principal District and Sessions Judge, Vinay Kumar Gupta, reserved the order after the conclusion of lengthy arguments made by both sides. The Enforcement Directorate had sought the transfer of the case to another judge. Earlier, the matter was heard by Special Judge Geetanjali Goel.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court had directed Rouse Avenue Court to consider on Thursday a plea by the Enforcement Directorate seeking the transfer of Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain’s bail hearing.
During the arguments of ED, ASG SV Raju submitted that there was an attempt to seek medical bail by using false medical reports. The court didn’t take any action. As a Minister, he has also been in charge of the Delhi prisons and has the ability to wield power, money, and influence.
“Jain was also the jail minister, He spent most of the time in the hospital during judicial custody, and the medical report was given as a fake. We gave all the documents to the court, but nothing happened,” ASG Raju added.
Appearing for Satyendar Jain, Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal submitted that he was shifted to LNJP Hospital as per the jail manual and no violation was held. When the same judge granted remand to Satyendar Jain, then it was fine.
