According to the information, Special Judge Geetanjli Goel passed the order on a plea moved by the federal agency seeking extension of Jain’s custody after the Delhi health minister, who is currently in hospital, appeared through a video conference.

Earlier during the day, the judge refused to entertain the plea noting that neither Jain nor any lawyer representing him was present before the court during the proceedings. After being told about Jain’s hospitalisation, the court directed the ED to ensure Jain’s presence through video conference later in the day.

The judge heard arguments on the agency’s plea and extended the judicial custody of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader by 14 days. On June 20, the 57-year-old leader was admitted to Delhi’s LNJP hospital after he complained of a low oxygen level. “He was brought from Tihar Jail to GB Pant Hospital first, and then shifted to the LNJP Hopsital. His condition is stable,” a source told media.
