New Delhi: In a money laundering case that the Enforcement Directorate is looking into, the Delhi High Court on Thursday denied Satyendar Jain's request for parole. Satyendar Jain is currently serving a prison sentence in Delhi. (ED).
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader's bail request was denied by the high court, which noted that he is a powerful individual and might tamper with the evidence. Jain, who was detained by the agency on May 30 of last year, is accused of using four companies that are purportedly connected to him to launder money.
Justice Dinesh Kumar Sharma also rejected the bail pleas of the co-accused in the case — Vaibhav Jain and Ankush Jain.
The detailed order is awaited.
The high court said there was no illegality or infirmity in the trial court’s order by which bail pleas were dismissed.
The three accused had challenged the trial court’s November 17 last year order.
The high court had reserved the order on the bail pleas on March 21 after hearing arguments of the counsels for the ED and the AAP leader and two others.
