MHA sanctions CBI inquiry against Satyendar Jain, more trouble for AAP.

According to sources cited by news agency ANI, the Union home ministry has approved a CBI investigation into Satyendar Jain, a jailed AAP leader, on suspicion of extorting ₹10 crore from conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar as purported "protection money". Allegations suggest that Jain, along with former Tihar Jail DG Sandeep Goel, operated an extortion scheme from within the jail, purportedly demanding protection fees from influential inmates. This development arises amidst Delhi Chief Minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal's custody by the ED regarding an alleged liquor policy scandal.

Earlier this year, Delhi LG VK Saxena authorized a CBI probe into the extortion accusations against Satyendar Jain. In a letter requesting approval for the investigation, the CBI alleged that Jain orchestrated an extortion ring from within Tihar Jail, demanding ₹10 crore from Chandrashekhar to ensure his comfort and security behind bars. These claims were made by Chandrashekhar, who asserted that Jain extorted money from him between 2018 and 2021, either directly or through associates, to facilitate his comfortable stay in various Delhi jails, including Tihar, Rohini, and Mandoli.

Satyendar Jain was arrested in May 2022 under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. His recent bail application was rejected by the Supreme Court in March of this year, which instructed him to surrender in connection with the money laundering case. He was granted temporary medical bail on May 26, 2023, following an incident where he sustained injuries in the jail bathroom. During this bail period, he underwent spinal surgery.
