    Delhi court dismisses default bail pleas of two accused in case against AAP leader Satyendar Jain

    A Delhi court on Wednesday dismissed the bail applications of two accused persons in a money laundering case lodged against AAP leader Satyendar Kumar Jain in a disproportionate assets case. Special Judge Vikas Dhull dismissed the default bail application filed by Vaibhav Jain and Ankush Jain, who are accused of abetting Satyendar Kumar Jain in acquisition of assets disproportionate to his known sources of Income. Both had moved the application, claiming they deserved to be granted statutory bail as the charge sheet filed against them was incomplete. The ED opposed their application on the ground that they were arrested on June 30, 2022 for the offence of money laundering and the prosecution complaint (ED’s equivalent of charge sheet) was filed on July 27, 2022, well before the expiry of 60-day prescribed period. However, the accused claimed that the charge sheet, also known as the final report, was incomplete since the agency claimed the investigation was still going on.
