NEW DELHI:   The Supreme Court on Tuesday extended the interim medical bail granted to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and former city health minister Satyendra till September 25 in a money laundering case.

A bench of Justices AS Bopanna and Bela M Trivedi granted the relief to Jain after ASG SV Raju made a request for adjournment. Senior advocate Abhishek Singhvi, appearing for Jain, also agreed to defer the matter.

The SC then postponed the matter to September 25 after extending the interim bail of the AAP leader. It also directed another accused, Ankush Jain, to be released on interim bail for four weeks on medical grounds noting that his child has to undergo surgery.

The SC on May 26 granted interim bail to Jain for six weeks for spinal surgery, saying a citizen has a right to receive treatment of his choice in a private hospital at his own expense. It had extended the interim bail by five weeks on July 24.

The ED arrested Jain on May 30 last year on the charge of laundering money through four companies allegedly linked to him. The anti-money laundering agency had arrested Jain on the basis of a CBI FIR registered against him in 2017 under the Prevention of Corruption Act.

He was granted regular bail by the trial court on September 6, 2019 in the case registered by the CBI.  Jain challenged Delhi HC’s April 6 order refusing to grant him bail noting that it did not find any illegality in the rejection of his bail pleas by the trial court on November 17, 2022.
