By Srishti Ojha: The Supreme Court today agreed to hear Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain’s plea tomorrow against the transfer of his money laundering case to a different court. 

Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for Jain, mentioned the case before a bench headed by the Chief Justice of India, UU Lalit.  

The Delhi High Court had earlier upheld the decision to transfer the case at the request of the Enforcement Directorate (ED). 

The High Court had dismissed Jain’s challenge to the trial court’s order transferring the case from one special judge to the other on the ED’s request. It observed that the apprehensions raised were not at a belated stage, as the request for an independent evaluation was consistently made and the ED had rushed to court. 

Further, the High Court said that all the facts were duly considered by the Principal District and Session’s Judge, and the impugned order didn’t suffer from any illegality or need any interference. 

The court also observed that the ED’s apprehension cannot be said to be flimsy or unreasonable and that such an apprehension is to be seen from the angle of a party and not from a judge.
