The Tihar jail officials on January 05 said that jailed minister Satyendar Jain has been threatening and abusing them with severe consequences once he gets out of prison. The AAP leader has been blatantly threatening these officers for their acts and trying to prevent him from availing facilities such as lavish food, massage and other VIP treatments that came to the fore in December last year, said Tihar jail officials.
Jaidev, Assistant Superintendent and Parveen Kumar, Deputy Superintendent of Tihar Jail, had complained against the jailed minister in an ‘incident report’ on December 08, 2022, that when they went to serve him a ‘Show Cause Notice’ as per rule 1272 of DPR, 2018, he threatened them.
Satyendar Jain, the jailed minister, had said, “I know everything all this has been done by the Law Officer. Once I am out of jail, I will ask for the CCTV footage from him and won’t spare SCJ-7 Rajesh Chaudhary. I will look after him and will teach him how a job is done. The entire matter is political. Once I am out of prison, all these government servants who have plotted against me, either serving or retired, won’t be spared.”
Rajesh Chaudhary, Superintendent, further said in his complaint that, “at that time he (undersigned), assumed that Satyendra Jain said this because of frustration, but in view of the latest incident report dated December 8, 2022, he has apprehension that Satyendra Jain, being a Minister may take adverse action against him and other Jail officials, once he comes out of the Jail”.
“In view of the above, it is requested that Satyendra Jain may be transferred to some other Jail at the earliest,” the complaint stated.
Satyendar Jain was arrested on May 30, 2022, under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) sections by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
On January 2, the Supreme Court refused to entertain Satyendar Jain’s plea challenging the Delhi HC order and seeking directions for an expeditious hearing of his bail plea concerning a money laundering case.
Satyendar Jain: A Habitual Offender!
Earlier on November 1, Conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar wrote a letter to Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena and alleged that he had paid Rs 10 crores as “protection money” to AAP Minister Satyendar Jain. He claimed to have known him since 2015. The hand-written letter of Conman Chandrashekhar sent to LG Saxena through his lawyer stated, “After my arrest in 2017, I was lodged in Tihar Jail and was visited multiple times by Mr Satyendar Jain, who held the portfolio of jail minister. In 2019 again, I was visited by Jain, whose secretary asked me to pay Rs 2 crore every month as protection money and to get basic facilities inside the jail.”
Sukesh Chandrasekhar is an accused of running an extortion racket worth Rs 200 crore from the inside of Tihar jail. He has also duped people on the pretext of promising them jobs
On November 4, he wrote another letter and alleged to have paid Rs 50 crores to Delhi CM Kejriwal for the Rajya Sabha seat. He added there was another demand of Rs 200 crores. He writes in his letter that he is being terrorised at the behest of Jain and ex-DG (Prisons) of Tihar after his complaint to the Delhi LG went public. Sukesh Chandrasekhar further wrote in this letter, “After my first complaint went public in the media, Satyendar Jain started threatening me through the jail administration and the ex-DG as the truth is going to be out and they (AAP) are going to be exposed to a different level.”
On November 19, he alleged that the AAP minister Satyendar Jain had sought his help to convert 20 million dollars into INR and bitcoins. He stated that Jain called him at 2 am in February 2017, asking for his assistance in converting $20 million in Indian rupees and bitcoin.
Satyender Jain, according to the conman Sukesh, indicated that the money must be collected from his business associates who operate a distillery in Bengaluru.
