CBI today visited AAP Minister Satyendra Jain’s residence: Find out why

The CBI decided to pay a visit to Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain’s residence earlier today, and this caused quite a flutter in the media and political circles of Delhi:

Initially it was perceived that the situation was the similar to the CBI raid of Kejriwal’s office in December 2015, but there was no such cause to worry for the AAP minister. The CBI, as it turns out, had merely paid a visit to Satyendra Jain’s home in order to seek clarification from his wife regarding a money laundering case in which he is involved.

Also there was no element of surprise in that visit (which a raid brings) and the CBI had actually asked his wife to choose a time and place of her convenience for a meeting and the visit was a result of her intimation.

So what is this matter all about?

Satyendra has long been embroiled in a hawala case. In January he had received an IT notice from an Additional Commissioner based in Delhi regarding this matter. The CBI too had registered a preliminary inquiry against Satyendra Jain in April.

According to allegations against him, companies like Paryas Infosolutions, Indo Metallmpex, Akinchan Developers, Ideal Estate, and Manglayatan were used to buy lands in and around Delhi from 2010-14 using hawala money.

We had earlier reported how there were reports of Satyendra Jain having substantial shares in companies named Prayas, Indo, and Akinchan but they were transferred to his wife in 2015 after he became the minister. This seems to be the reason why the CBI wanted to meet his wife today.

It was reported that these companies used to send cash to their Kolkata counterparts who then under the pretext of buying the shares in the former companies, would send back the amount using legal means. It was reported that using these means the companies laundered about 16.39 crores from 2010 to 2014 and about Rs 4.63 crore in 2015-16.

Even though today’s visit was merely a routine affair with the CBI actually asking for an appointment from Mr. Jain’s wife, the AAP’s associates decided to spread false news in order to possibly play the victim card and were also aided in this regard by retweets from Kejriwal:
