The Delhi High Court on Friday stayed the Trial Court’s order, allowing presence of the counsel of Delhi Cabinet Minister Satyendar Jain, during interrogation by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with a money laundering case.
The High Court reserved its verdict, while hearing the ED’s petition.
The ED, in its petition, had sought Jain’s custody from the lower court till June 9, which the court agreed to.
The Trial Court also allowed the presence of his lawyer during the interrogation of Jain by the ED, which was challenged by the national agency in the Delhi High Court.
When the ED team will interrogate Delhi government minister Satyendar Jain in the case of hawala transactions, he will not have any lawyer with him. Accepting the argument of the Enforcement Directorate, the Delhi High Court set aside the arguments of Satyendra Jain.
Keeping a lawyer with you will make interrogation difficult. The Delhi High Court has said in its decision that no FIR or complaint has been lodged in this case, so the detained accused cannot get the facility.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday moved the Delhi High Court against the trial court’s decision allowing the presence of a lawyer during the interrogation of Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain, who was arrested in a money laundering case. A bench of Acting Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Sachin Dutta accepted the request of ED’s counsel for urgent listing of the petition and fixed the matter for hearing today.
