New Delhi: Delhi Health Minister and senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Satyendar Jain has been arrested by the ED. Sources said that the ED detained a minister in the Kejriwal government, Satyendar Jain, and then interrogated him in the money laundering case. Shortly thereafter he was arrested.
Satyendra Jain’s name has also come up in the case of disproportionate assets. It is alleged that he had raised benami property through a Kolkata-based company. After the arrest of the Health Minister, the AAP government of Delhi is under question. Even before this, some ministers of Delhi have come on the radar of the police. Jain is accused of trying to convert his benami property into white money with the help of this shell company.
After the arrest of Satyendra Jain, BJP leader Pravesh Sahib Singh has targeted AAP by tweeting. He tweeted, “Arvind Kejriwal’s health minister Satyendar Jain, who pretends to be honest, has been arrested by the ED on corruption charges.”
