Just hours after the BJP released a video of AAP minister Satyendra receiving a massage in jail, his legal team filed a contemptuous plea against the ED, claiming the footage had been “leaked”.
New Delhi,UPDATED: 19 Nov. 2022 6:17 PM IST
BJP has released a video of ‘VIP treatment’ to imprisoned AAP minister Satyendar Jain.
By Nalini Sharma, Aneesha Mathur: The Rouse Avenue court in Delhi issued a notice to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Saturday after AAP Minister Satyendra Jain’s legal team filed a plea saying that the CCTV footage showing him receiving a massage in prison, were “leaked”. Jain’s legal team said the ED “leaked” the CCTV footage without heeding the commitment it made in court.
The court asked the research agency how the video was leaked despite his commitment? Special Judge Vikas Dhull has notified the ED and set the case for hearing on November 21.

Earlier in the day, the BJP released an old video of Satyendar Jain getting a massage in a Tihar prison cell. Tihar Jail sources told India Today that the video is old and authorities have already taken action against officers and prison staff involved.
The video brought back the debate over ED’s earlier claims that Satyendar Jain was getting VIP treatment at Tihar Prison with facilities like head massage, foot massage and back massage. The financial investigation firm also submitted evidence related to the Delhi minister’s “luxurious life” in jail to a court.
The 58-year-old Delhi minister was arrested on May 30 in connection with an alleged money laundering case.
