Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain arrested by ED, AAP calls out BJP 'misusing' agencies

New Delhi: 

Delhi’s Health Minister, Satyendar Jain has been arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). He has been arrested in connection to a hawala transaction case.

Sayendar Jain has allegedly involved  himself in ‘hawala’ transactions. ED’s action came over a month after assets linked were worth Rs 4.81 crore were attached by the agency.

The alleged ‘hawala’ transactions were made under the name of Kolkata-based company as per a report by ANI.

He is accused of receiving money from shell companies in lieu of cash transferred by the ‘hawala’, which

 is an informal cash transfer system being used for money laundering. 

The Deputy CM of Delhi Manish Sisodia said that the agency is being misused by the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP). This is being done because Satyendar Jain is actively involved in AAP’s election campaign in the poll-bound state of Himachal Pradesh.

Sisodia said,

 “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.”
