A petition was filed in the Delhi High Court by the Directorate of Enforcement (ED), challenging the trial court orders, permitting Delhi Minister Satyender Jain to be medically examined and admitted in Delhi government-run Lok Nayak Hospital.

As per ED, Jain should be medically evaluated by an independent hospital like the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) or Ram Manohar Lohia because there was a likelihood of his medical report from a Delhi government hospital being tutored, since Jain is a Minister with the Delhi government.

The agency further said that Jain was very much likely to get a ‘favourable’ Medical Report from Lok Nayak, since he had influence over the hospitals that come under the control of the Government of NCT of Delhi.

ED has said that Jain was holding the post of the minister of health and his picture continues to be on the website of the Lok Nayak Hospital as well as on the plaque in the hospital commemorating the inauguration by Jain as the guest of honour.

The petition said that ED had a serious doubt over the Lok Nayak Jaiprakash Hospital or even the GB Pant Hospital being able to independently assess the medical condition of Jain.

When the investigating officer (IO) went to Lok Nayak Hospital to ensure that Jain appeared before the Vacation Judge through video-conferencing, he was found sleeping on the patient bed without any cannula on his hand and even the multiparameter patient monitor was switched off and he was not being monitored by any medical instrument, alleged the agency.

It further said that his wife was present in the room and when the IO reached the room, Jain immediately wore the oxygen mask, while the BP apparatus belt and monitor was also switched on.

The Minister was admitted to the Lok Nayak Hospital on July 15 and has remained there since. ED had raised objection before the trial court on July 19, but the judge adjourned the matter to July 29.

CBI had initially registered a case against Jain on allegations that he had acquired movable properties in the name of various persons between 2015 and 2017, for which he could not give a satisfactory answer.

The case was registered under Section 13 (2) (criminal misconduct by public servant) read with 13 (e) (disproportionate assets) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988.

On the basis of its probe into the allegations of money laundering, ED had, on April 5, 2022, provisionally attached Jain’s immovable properties worth Rs 4.81 crore belonging to M/s Akinchan Developers Pvt Ltd, M/s Indo Metal Impex Pvt Ltd, M/s Paryas Infosolutions Pvt Ltd, M/s Manglayatan Projects Pvt Ltd, M/s JJ Ideal Estate Pvt Ltd and other persons under PMLA.

AS per ED, between 2015 and 2016, when Jain was a public servant, these companies ‘beneficially owned and controlled by him,’ received accommodation entries amounting to the tune of Rs 4.81 crore from shell companies against the cash transferred to Kolkata-based entry operators through a hawala route.

Earlier, a Delhi court had rejected the bail plea of the Minister and he was currently in judicial custody.
