ED arrests AAP's Health Minister Satyendar Jain in hawala case
"A fake case is being run against Satyendra Jain for 8 years. Till now ED has called him many times. In between, ED stopped calling for many years as they did not get anything. Now, they have started again because Satyendra Jain is the (party's) election in-charge of Himachal Pradesh," Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's had in January, before the Punjab polls, predicted about an imminent arrest of Satyendar Jain. "From our sources, we have got to know that right before Punjab polls, in the coming few days, the ED is going to arrest Satyendar Jain."

NEW DELHI, May 30: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested Satyendar Jain, Delhi's Health Minister and senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader, in a 'hawala transactions' case on Monday. The alleged transactions were linked to a Kolkata-based company.

Assets worth Rs 4.81 cr linked to Jain were attached by the agency last month. Jain is accused of money laundering and receiving money from shell companies.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said Jain is being targeted in a "fake case" to help the BJP in the forthcoming Himachal elections.

"A fake case is being run against Satyendra Jain for 8 years. Till now ED has called him many times. In between, ED stopped calling for many years as they did not get anything. Now, they have started again because Satyendra Jain is the (party's) election in-charge of Himachal Pradesh where the BJP is losing badly. This is why Satyendra Jain has been arrested today so that he cannot go to Himachal Pradesh. He will be released in a few days as the case is completely fake," Sisodia said.

A disproportionate assets case was filed against Jain by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in 2017. The CBI claimed that Jain purchased 200 bighas of agricultural land in the names of companies controlled by him in Delhi. Jain controlled these companies in his name or his family members' names.

The funds were allegedly used to purchase over 200 bighas of land in Auchandi, Bawana, Karala and Mohammed Mazvi villages in Delhi between 2010 and 16, according to the charge.
