Health Minister of Delhi Satyendar Jain was sent to hospital on Thursday after complaining of uneasiness while leaving the Rouse Avenue Court, where his ED detention had been prolonged until June 13.
After the court hearing, Jain was sent to the ED’s headquarters in New Delhi. After staying there some time he was then transported to a local hospital.
Jain was produced in the Rouse Avenue Court on Wednesday after his ED custody ended. During the proceedings, Jain’s counsel moved a bail application on his behalf. However, his custody was extended following ED’s objection.
The ED told the court that it recovered cash worth Rs 2.85 crore and 133 gold coins weighing 1.80 kg during raids against Jain and his aides on Monday. “During the raid, we have recovered a number of things and have to confront him with the people whose houses were raided,” the agency said.
Based on a FIR filed by the CBI in 2017 under section 13(2) read with 13(1)(e) of the PC Act, 1988, the ED launched a money-laundering probe into Jain, his wife Poonam Jain, and Ajit Prasad Jain, Sunil Kumar Jain, Vaibhav Jain, and Ankush Jain.
The CBI filed a charge sheet against Jain, his wife Poonam Jain, and others on December 3, 2018. Jain amassed assets that were disproportionate to his known sources of income while working as a Minister in the Delhi government from February 14, 2015 to May 31, 2017, according to the charge sheet.
The CBI has charged Jain, his wife, and other individuals with violating the Prevention of Corruption Act.
Earlier, the ED had provisionally attached immovable properties worth Rs 4.81 crore belonging to companies beneficially owned and controlled by Jain on March 31, 2022. He was placed under arrest on May 30 by the ED under section 19 of the PMLA.
