Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s January prediction concerning the imminent arrest of his Health Minister Satyendar Jain got here true on Monday.
Minister Satyendar Jain was arrested this night by the Enforcement Directorate or ED in an alleged cash laundering case.
The arrest comes almost two months after properties price Rs 4.81 crore owned by the Aam Aadmi Party chief and his household had been hooked up by the Enforcement Directorate.
The probe company, which investigates monetary crimes, alleged that the minister within the Arvind Kejriwal authorities was concerned in hawala transactions with a Kolkata-based agency in 2015-16.
“From our sources, we have got to know that right before Punjab polls, in the coming few days, the ED is going to arrest (Delhi Health and Home Minister) Satyendar Jain. They are most welcome. Previously too, the centre had conducted raids on Satyendar Jain but got nothing,” Mr Kejriwal had mentioned this in January.
The timing of the arrest might not have coincided with the Punjab polls however the substantive matter of arrest bore fruit at present.
Back then, Mr Jain had additionally attacked the BJP-controlled central authorities and mentioned he was able to be arrested.
“A fake case has been going on against Satyendar Jain for eight years. He has been called by the ED several times so far. The ED had stopped calling him for some time because it did not find anything against him. Now, it has again started calling him because he is the (AAP) in-charge of the Himachal Pradesh polls,” Manish Sisodia, deputy chief minster Delhi, mentioned at present in a tweet in Hindi.
AAP chief Sanjay Singh alleged the Minister has been arrested now to “defame” the social gathering forward of the Himachal Pradesh Assembly polls.
“The ED summoned Satyendar Jain seven times in 2018 but could not find anything against him. The ED took no action from 2019 till now and the case appeared to be closed. Now the case has been reopened before the Himachal election. This is nothing but yet another instance of the BJP manhandling the state machinery for political gains,” he mentioned.
