New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Satyendra Jain’s bail plea and asked him to surrender in connection with a money laundering case.

A bench comprising Justice Bela M. Trivedi and Justice Pankaj Mithal said, “All the appeals are dismissed. Mr. Satyender Jain has to surrender forthwith.”

Former Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in May 2022 in the money-laundering case.

Jain remained in jail for a year before procuring interim bail from the Supreme Court on medical grounds in May 2023. The bail was later extended by the Apex Court, and Jain is outside jail as of now.

Jain was denied regular bail from the Delhi High Court in April 2023, on the grounds that Jain was an influential person and cannot be said to have satisfied the twin conditions for bail under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

After that, Jain approached the Supreme Court for regular bail, which was dismissed today, and the AAP leader was directed to surrender forthwith.
