In a fresh trouble for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, CBI today reached AAP Minister Satyendar Jain’s residence in New Delhi, according to ANI report. A team of CBI sleuths reportedly sought clarifications from Jain’s wife regarding allegations of money laundering against the minister. Earlier, the minister’s wife had intimated a time and place of her convenience to CBI, the report says. The visit to Jain’s house after Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s statement was recorded by the agency over Talk to AK media campaign. Jain, who was elected from Shakur Basti Assembly constituency, had on June 16 said that they have done nothing wrong and was ready to face any probe. The architect-turned-politician had then tweeted that AAP would keep working for Delhi’s development without fear. AAP has lashed out at ruling party in the Centre saying BJP was carrying out vendetta politics. The party in its official Twitter handle said that after CM Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, BJP’s CBI raided Jain. Media Advisor to Sisodia, Arunoday Prakash has accused the central government of trying to silence dissenters.

Sharpening its attack on BJP and CBI, AAP has revealed information which it claimed was the truth behind CBI’s visit to Jain’s house. In a 3-point document, it claims the BJP government at the Centre had said there are two people- Sanjay and Suresh- who have been working for the minister since 2010. The central government said that these two men used to send money for hawala transactions in Kolkata, AAP claimed.

AAP said that these two people do not even exist and Jain himself had asked authorities concerned to produce them. But Income Tax Department and CBI have not yet produced them, AAP said.

AAP said that BJP alleged that phone calls were made to Kolkata from a Delhi number 011-27314231 from 2010 to 2016. AAP claimed that no STD calls were from the number. The number becam inactive in 2014.

AAP alleged that the Income Tax Department has claimed that there were four witnesses against Jain. AAP claimed these four persons were telling lies and gave statement under pressure.

Take a look at AAP’s tweet

On June 1, the CBI had examined Delhi minister Satyendar Jain in connection with its probe into allegations of money laundering against him. Jain was questioned for over eight hours by its sleuths, CBI sources said. Jain holds several portfolios in the Arvind Kejriwal government. The CBI sources told PTI, it might soon convert the preliminary enquiry into a regular case as it was not convinced by the arguments put forth by Jain.

The agency had registered a preliminary enquiry against Jain in connection with allegations of money laundering. It was alleged that Jain was involved in money laundering to the tune of Rs 4.63 crore while being a public servant during 2015-16 through Prayas Info Solutions Private Limited, Akinchan Developers Private Limited and Managalyatan Projects Private Limited, the CBI sources said.

Jain had dismissed the allegations after the Enforcement Directorate last month attached properties linked to him in the matter. A preliminary enquiry is the first step by the CBI to gather information about the allegations. If the agency is convinced that there exists prima facie material in the matter, it may register a regular case against the accused. The allegations against Jain also include purported money laundering to the tune of Rs 11.78 crore during 2010-12 through these companies and Indometal Impex Pvt Limited.

            Satyendra Jain's name appears in one way or another in every seemingly fraudulent activity. From an Architect to crores of undo ented assets in India and abroad, he is so badly maligned. He should take leave from his current duties and prove himself since he has an overwhelming credibility issue with Delhi Public as he dances in the haals of power and decision making. Do not hide such incredulous people behind a witch hunt by Government since it demonstrates that AAP has totally surrendered to corruption and cannot see corruption in front of its nose. Either come clean or take leave
