Delhi: On Saturday, November 19, a video of AAP minister Satyendar Jain receiving massage inside Tihar jail came to light. The video was tweeted by a BJP spokesperson, Shezhad Poonawala.

In the video, the AAP minister is seen receiving a head massage inside jail, there are also visuals in which you can see packaged drinking water, this is against the rules of the prison.

Jain, whose bail has been denied in various hearings since his arrest in the PMLA case on May 30, is presently lodged in Tihar Jail.

The Aam Aadmi Party, however, came to Jain's defense in a press conference. The Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia, claimed that Jain is unwell and needs medical attention, and regular physiotherapy sessions have been recommended by the doctors in all his medical reports.

Sisodia, further claimed that Jain's medical condition is mentioned on record and that the BJP is aware of it, yet they are mocking him and his health.

The BJP spokesperson, Gaurav Bhatia, said ,"The 'kattar beimaan' thug is taking a massage in jail by violating laws.He's jailed for 5 months now but has still not been sacked as a minister. Video shows VVIP culture. We're asking you questions after seeing the video, Arvind Kejriwal where are you hiding?"

Bail denied in previous hearings as well

Jain, whose bail has been denied in various hearings since his arrest in the PMLA case on May 30, is presently lodged in Tihar Jail.

As per the earlier submissions of the Enforcement Directorate (ED), the AAP leader was in de facto control of shell companies used for alleged money laundering, and co-accused Ankush Jain and Vaibhav Jain were just dummies.

On the other hand, Satyendar Jain's counsel argued that the alleged role attributed to him does not fall in the ambit of Section 45 of the PMLA.

CBI accused Satyendar Jain, wife and others of corruption

Earlier, the CBI had accused Satyendar Jain, his wife, and others of offences under the Prevention of Corruption Act.

On March 31, the ED provisionally attached immovable properties worth Rs 4.81 crore belonging to companies beneficially owned and controlled by the minister.

On June 6, the probe agency conducted raids at multiple locations belonging to Satyendar Jain, his wife and accomplices, who had either directly or indirectly assisted him or participated in the processes of money laundering.

A recovery of Rs 2.85 crore in cash and 133 gold coins weighing 1.80 kg was made during the raid.
