Satyendar Jain Money Laundering case transferred to another Judge

The Principal District and Sessions Court of Rouse Avenue Courts on Friday allowed the Enforcement Directorate petition that sought the transfer of a money laundering case related to Aam Aadmi Party MLA Satyendar Jain.
The Principal District and Sessions Judge Vinay Kumar Gupta on Friday agreed to transfer the Satyender Jain money laundering case to another judge and listed the matter afresh for hearing today itself. The case has been transferred to Special Judge Vikas Dhull.
Earlier, it was heard at length by Special Judge Geetanjali Goel. On Thursday, during arguments of the 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. He has been handling the Delhi prisons too as a minister and can use power, money, and influence.
“Satyendar Jain was also the jail minister. He spent most of the time in the hospital during judicial custody. The medical report was given as fake…we gave all the documents to the court, but nothing happened,” ASG Raju added.
Appearing for Jain, Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal submitted that he was shifted to LNJP Hospital and, as per the jail manual, no violation was held.
When the same judge granted remand to Satyendar Jain, then it was fine.
An ED plea seeking the transfer of the case to another clearly shows a malafide contention. The ground taken by the ED is totally vague.
Earlier, the court of District Judge had stayed Satyendar Jain’s trial after an ED plea sought transfer of the case and issued notice to all the accused persons.
