AAP's Satyendra Jain questioned by CBI over alleged corruption
Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain was questioned for the second day on June 3 by the CBI in an alleged corruption case. On the first day, he arrived at the bureau headquarters at around 2pm, and was questioned till late in the evening. Jain has been accused of laundering around Rs. 17cr though shell companies, and then using it to buy land in Delhi.
Jain allegedly used shell companies to divert money
Jain's alleged money laundering activities came to light in January, when two hawala operators, Jivendra Mishra and Rajendra Bansal, were questioned. Firms owned by Jain had allegedly received Rs. 16.39cr from shell companies belonging to Mishra, Bansal and Abhishek Chokhani, all based in Kolkata. A security of I-T returns of Jain's four companies also showed that money laundering had been happening there since 2010.
Other accusations against Jain
Recently, sacked AAP minister Kapil Mishra fired a salvo of accusations against Jain, including that he had seen Jain give CM Arvind Kejriwal a bribe of Rs. 2cr. Jain later filed a defamation complaint against Mishra. Earlier, Jain was probed for allegedly irregular appointment of his daughter in his department. Delhi Police also attached his assets worth Rs. 33cr under the benami property law.
