Satyendar Jain’s Legal Team Moves Court Seeking Contempt Action Against ED Over Leaked Video

New Delhi: The legal team of jailed Delhi minister Satyendar Jain filed an application in a special court asking for contempt against the Enforcement Directorate (ED), claiming that the agency had leaked the CCTV footage despite their promise made in court.

The ED was given notice by Special Judge Vikas Dhull that the case would be heard on November 21.

Notably, a video clip of Satyendar Jain, showing a man giving him a foot massage while the minister lies on the bed inside a Tihar jail cell, has gone viral on the social media.

The video dated September 13 was recorded by a CCTV camera a little past 1 pm.

The videos first appeared on social media on Saturday, a few days after the ED claimed that the Delhi minister was getting preferential treatment while being held in the Tihar jail.

“Even after curfew had ended, unknown people were giving Mr. Jain massages and foot massages. He received a special diet, “In a court, the ED said.

Lashing out at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the CCTV videos, BJP leader Gaurav Bhatia, as quoted by news agency ANI said, “The ‘kattar beimaan’ (absolute dishonest) thug is taking a massage in jail by violating laws. He’s been jailed for 5 months now but has still not been sacked as a minister. The video shows VVIP culture. We’re asking you questions after seeing the video, Arvind Kejriwal where are you hiding?”

It is to be noted that Jain was arrested on May 30 after the ED charged him under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) for alleged money laundering and owning assets disproportionate to his income between February and May 2017.
