The ED had arrested Jain and others in a money laundering case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act on the basis of a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) FIR. Jain is alleged to have laundered money through four companies linked to him. CBI had registered an FIR against Jain in 2017. Jain was arrested on May 30 under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and is currently lodged in the Tihar Jail.

Recently, a superintendent of Tihar Jail has been suspended for his involvement in providing “special facilities” to jailed Aam Aadmi Party leader and minister Satyendar Jain. The ED had filed an application in the court alleging that with the connivance of the jail administration, Satyendar Jain was getting additional facilities.

The video of Satyendar Jain being massaged was also shown to the court. All the officers and employees of Tihar Jail No. 7 were transferred to other jails. While Jail Superintendent Ajit Kumar was suspended. Ashok Rawat, Superintendent of Jail No. 5, has been given the additional responsibility of Jail No. 7. In September, when the bail hearing of all the accused was at the final stage, the ED filed an application seeking transfer of the case from the court of special judge Geetanjali Goel to a new judge while raising an apprehension of bias.

The agency had said the minister had faked his illness by getting a report from the Delhi government-run Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Hospital, and despite knowing that there is something fishy, the trial court judge did not go to check the veracity of the medical certificate.The court had said the apprehension of bias by the trial court judge was not raised at a belated stage, “as the requests for an independent evaluation were consistently made”. It further said the apprehension has to be seen from the point of view of the party and not from the judge’s angle.
