Jailed AAP Leader Satyendra Jain Granted 6 Weeks Bail by SC on Medical Grounds


New Delhi: Delhi’s former health minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Satyendar Jain was granted six weeks interim bail by the Supreme Court on Friday on medical grounds. Since his arrest in a money laundering case in May 2022, Satyendar Jain is lodged in the Tihar jail.

“We are inclined to consider interim bail on medical grounds and grant him six weeks to take medical treatment in private hospitals of his choice. He is being released on interim bail on medical grounds on conditions imposed by the trial court with the addition that he shall not influence or meet with any witnesses,” the court said. This order shall remain in operation till July 11.

The Supreme Court laid down clauses that said Satyendar Jain cannot leave Delhi without permission and cannot make any statement before the media. The apex court allowed Satyendar Jain to undergo treatment in the hospital of his choice, asking him to produce medical records.

Jain collapsed in a bathroom of Tihar Jail due to dizziness on Thursday and was admitted to the ICU of Delhi’s Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan (LNJP) Hospital on Thursday.
