New Delhi, : Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain in connection with a money laundering case on Monday.
The arrest has been made in a case connected to hawala transactions related to a Kolkata-based company in 2015-16, officials said.
The arrest comes nearly two months after properties worth ₹ 4.81 crore owned by Jain and his family were attached by the Enforcement Directorate.
Reacting over Jain’s arrest, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said, “A fake case is being run against Satyendar Jain for eight years. ED called many times before & stopped for many years in between as they couldn’t find anything. Now it’s started again as he’s Himachal Pradesh’s poll in-charge… He’ll be released in few days as case is bogus”.
