Jail’s Delhi minister Satyendra Jain was admitted to the capital’s LNJP hospital on Monday after complaining of low oxygen levels. His condition is said to be stable.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader has been admitted to Jain Hospital two days after a Delhi court denied bail to him in a case relating to illegal money transfers through Kolkata-based shell companies.

Special Judge Gitanjali Goel said that in the absence of medical records showing Satyendra Jain’s medical condition, he could not be granted bail only because he was suffering from sleep apnea.

The court has indicated that if Jain is granted bail, he is likely to distort the evidence as he is in an influential position.

The illegal money transfer case is based on the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) First Information Report (FIR) of 2017 filed against the Delhi minister.

On May 30, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested Jain and sent him to 14 days judicial custody.

ED is accused of laundering money through four companies that are related to Jain, where he owns shares while earning disproportionate income.

Last Friday, the central agency attacked ten locations in the National Capital Region (NCR) for the case.

The AAP has condemned the action taken against Satyendra Jain, the party’s national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is a patriot and is being accused of wrongdoing.
