ED concludes arguments on Satyendar Jain's bail plea, case adjourned to Nov 10

New Delhi/UNI: The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday concluded its arguments in the bail application of Delhi's Health Minister Satyendar Jain, who has been arrested under the provisions of the Prevention Money Laundering Act.

The court adjourned the matter to Nov 10 for rebuttal.

The Additional Solicitor General on behalf of the Enforcement Directorate opposed the bail application of all three accused and at last submitted before the court that they have concluded the arguments.

Counsel for Jain, in theire bail application before the court, submitted that the "only fault was of him was that he became a minister and got into public life otherwise there would be no case."

Government Counsel for ED opposed the bail application by submitting that Jain served as a Health Minister in Delhi and may manage to get forged documents and can influence the doctors as well as jail officials.

The ED has submitted that if bail is granted he may influence the co-accused, witnesses and other documents related to the case.

Counsel for Jain opposed the submission of ED by stating that the purpose of ED was to prolong the custody of Jain.

The probe agency arrested Satyendar Jain on May 30 under the violations of provisions of PMLA and he is now in judicial custody at Tihar.

The CBI in its charge sheet has alleged amassing assets to the tune of Rs 1.47 crore in a disproportionate assets case while the ED has submitted the attachment of Rs. 4.81 crores in connection with a money laundering investigation.
