Property, bank papers linked to Jain found, says CBI
New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has recovered property documents, bank deposit slips of about Rs 2 crore allegedly related to Delhi minister Satyendar Jain, and companies where he was a director, during searches, the agency sources said.
The documents were recovered during searches at the residences of Delhi Dental Council Registrar Rishiraj, who was arrested on Saturday in a separate case, they said.
Rishiraj and N Pradeep Sharma, a lawyer for the council, were arrested last night while allegedly receiving a bribe of Rs 4.7 lakh from a doctor, they said.
Later, during the searches at the residence of Rishiraj, the agency recovered the property documents in Jain's name at Karala village, cheque books in the name of the AAP leader, his wife Poonam and JJITL estate private limited, sources said.
"The CBI has registered a case…on the allegations of demanding bribe from the complainant for getting him favourable order from the Delhi Dental Council and also for extending help in further legal proceedings in his matter," CBI Spokesperson Abhishek Dayal said. He said the CBI laid a trap and caught the accused while demanding and accepting the bribe from the complainant. They said IDBI bank slips showing deposits worth Rs 2 crore in the name of Jain's companies in 2011 were also found.
