New Delhi: Just few weeks before civic polls in Delhi, the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP government faced a major setback with the CBI registering a preliminary enquiry against Health Minister Satyendra Jain in connection with a money laundering case.
Jain was allegedly involved in money laundering to the tune of Rs 4.63 crore while serving as a public servant during 2015-16 through Prayas Info Solutions Private Limited, Akinchand Developers Private Limited and Managalyatan Projects Private Limited.
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.
The matter was referred to the CBI by the Income Tax Department under the new Benami Transactions Prohibitions Act.
The minister and the AAP has dismissed the allegation, terming them as political vendetta.
