New Delhi, Dec 3: The Central Bureau of Investigation on Monday filed a chargesheet against Delhi minister Satyendra Jain, his wife Poonam and his business associates Ajeet Prasad Jain, Vaibhav Jain, Sunil Jain and Ayush Jain in disproportionate assets case.
This comes nearly a week after, the Union Home Ministry granted sanction to prosecute Delhi Health Minister in a case registered by the CBI in 2017, triggering an angry response from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
Jain is accused of floating several shell firms in the national capital including Akinchan Developers Pvt Ltd, Indo Metal Impex Pvt Ltd, Paryas Infosolutions Pvt Ltd and Manglayatan Projects Pvt Ltd during 2009-10 and 2010-11 for alleged money laundering.
The probe agency initiated the investigation against the Minister in April 2017 and registered a FIR on August 24 this year.
However, Jain, who holds seven portfolios including Health, Home and Public Works Department, has refuted the allegations, saying the CBI action is politically motivated.
