CBI Inquiry Sanctioned Against Satyendar Jain – AAP Leader for Alleged Extortion

Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena has granted approval for a CBI inquiry, under the Prevention of Corruption Act, against former Delhi Minister and AAP leader Satyendar Jain. The investigation focuses on allegations of Jain extorting Rs 10 crore from infamous conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar, who was incarcerated in Tihar Jail at the time. Jain, then the Jail Minister, is accused of orchestrating an extortion racket within the prison, demanding “protection money” from Chandrashekhar for a peaceful existence behind bars.

Serious Accusations and VIP Treatment Claims

The LG’s office revealed that Sukesh Chandrashekhar accused Jain of receiving Rs 10 crore between 2018-21, either personally or through associates, to ensure a comfortable stay in various Delhi jails. Additionally, Jain, who faced arrest by the Enforcement Directorate for money laundering, allegedly influenced jail officials for privileged treatment, including body massages, while being lodged in Tihar Jail.

Broader Investigation and Referral to MHA

The LG, having sanctioned the CBI inquiry, has referred the matter to the Ministry of Home Affairs for necessary action. This development follows a similar inquiry sanctioned against Raj Kumar, the former Superintendent of Tihar Jail, for alleged extortion activities at the behest of Jain and Sandeep Goel, the former DG of Tihar Jail.

Accused Officials Misusing Positions

Jain, Goel, along with Mukesh Prasad and Raj Kumar, are accused of misusing their official positions as public servants. The charges include extending undue favors to Sukesh Chandrashekhar and other high-profile inmates in Delhi jails in exchange for monetary considerations.

As the CBI delves into these serious allegations, the case sheds light on corruption within the prison system and misuse of authority by public officials.
