Supreme Court Directs Delhi HC to Expedite Satyendar Jain’s Bail Decision by July 9

In a recent hearing, the Supreme Court of India instructed the Delhi High Court to expedite the decision on the bail plea of the incarcerated former AAP minister, Satyendar Jain, concerning his involvement in a money laundering case. The directive came from a bench comprising Justices Manoj Misra and S V N Bhatti on Tuesday, emphasizing that bail matters should not face unnecessary delays. The High Court has been scheduled to reach a decision by the next hearing on July 9.

Satyendar Jain had approached the Supreme Court challenging the six-week adjournment of his bail plea by the Delhi High Court. During his petition, Jain urged that his case be tagged with a similar issue currently pending before the Supreme Court.

The origins of the legal proceedings against Jain date back to a 2017 FIR by the CBI, under the Prevention of Corruption Act, leading to his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate on May 30, 2022. Although Jain was granted regular bail by a trial court on September 6, 2019, in the CBI case, the current ED case has seen ongoing judicial proceedings.
