Money laundering case: Delhi court stays proceedings, bail hearing against Satyendar Jain

The agency, in its plea raised certain issues about the bail arguments being heard by Special judge Goel, who has frequently pulled up the ED over its investigation.

A Delhi court on Monday stayed the trial proceedings and bail hearing of AAP minister Satyendar Jain and two others in a money laundering case.

The hearing was over Enforcement Directorate's plea to transfer the alleged money laundering case against Jain from Special Judge Geetanjali Goel to another judge.

The agency, in its plea raised certain issues about the bail arguments being heard by Goel, who has frequently pulled up the ED over its investigation. Goel has been hearing the lengthy arguments on the bail petitions of Jain and his co-accused Ankush Jain and Vaibhav Jain.

The District Judge of Rouse Avenue Court also issued notice to all the accused on ED plea seeking transfer of the case to another judge.

The ED had arrested Satyendar Jain and two others in a money laundering case based on a CBI FIR in 2017 under the Prevention of Corruption Act. The minister has been accused of having laundered money through four companies allegedly linked to him.

The Delhi Minister is also being questioned by the probe agency in the alleged excise policy scam. Goel had recently allowed the ED to question him inside the jail on September 16 with regard to the case, which has become a flashpoint between the city's AAP government and the Centre.
