NEW DELHI: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday morning reached Delhi PWD and health minister Satyendar Jain’s house for questioning his wife in connection with a money laundering case.

He is the second AAP leader and Delhi minister whose house has been visited by CBI officials for questioning in the last seven days. Last week, CBI questioned Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia at his official residence.

Reacting to the development, AAP has claimed that the two men — Sanjay and Suresh — whom the CBI has accused of transacting with Hawala operators on behalf of PWD minister Satyender Jain, do not exist. AAP leader and spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said that the CBI claimed that the two persons had been working with Jain since 2010.

“Both these men don’t even exist. Jain has been asking CBI to produce these two men before us but they have failed. This is because there are no such persons. The landline number, from which CBI claims these two have been in touch with Hawala operators in Kolkata, has been closed since 2014,” Bharadwaj said.
