Satyendar Jain money laundering case: Delhi Court to pronounce big verdict today | India News

Delhi court will rule on the bail applications of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Satyendar Jain and two others in a money laundering case on Thursday (November 17, 2022). Special Judge Vikas Dhull, who was scheduled to issue the order on Wednesday, postponed it because the order was not ready.

According to the news agency PTI, Jain had urged the court to grant him bail, claiming that keeping him in custody would serve no purpose. The judge reserved the order after hearing arguments from the accused, including Vaibhav Jain and Ankush Jain, as well as the Enforcement Directorate, according to PTI (ED).
