Money laundering case: Satyendar Jain’s wife appears before ED

Poonam Jain, wife of Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain, on Monday appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the Prevention of Money Laundering case.

She had to join the probe on July 14 but didn’t join on health grounds.

Poonam Jain was then again summoned to record her statements. A three-member team, including one woman, is recording her statement.

Satyendar Jain is currently lodged in the Tihar Jail in the PMLA case. His bail application was earlier rejected by the court.

On July 1, the ED arrested Vaibhav Jain and Ankush Jain, the two associates of the Delhi health minister.

The ED had initiated the money laundering investigation on the basis of the FIR registered by CBI in 2017 under section 13(2) read with 13(1)(e) of the PC Act, 1988 against Jain, his wife Poonam Jain, and Ajit Prasad Jain, Sunil Kumar Jain, Vaibhav Jain and Ankush Jain.

A charge sheet was filed by the CBI on December 3, 2018 against Jain, his wife Poonam Jain, and other accused. It was alleged that Jain, while holding the office as a Minister in the Government of Delhi, during the period February 14, 2015 to May 31, 2017 had acquired assets which were disproportionate to his known sources of income.

Earlier, the ED had provisionally attached the immovable properties worth Rs 4.81 crore belonging to the companies beneficially owned and controlled by Jain on March 31, 2022.

Jain was placed under arrest on May 30 by the ED under sections 19 of the PMLA.
