The Supreme Court has granted interim bail till July 11 to former Delhi minister Satyendar Jain on medical grounds in a money laundering case. A bench of Justices JK Maheshwari and PS Narasimha on Friday allowed Jain to undergo treatment in a hospital of his choice and asked him to produce the medical records by July 10.
It also directed Jain not to speak to the media during the period of interim bail. Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for Jain, said the former minister had lost 35 kgs in weight and was suffering from a spinal problem.
Additional Solicitor General SV Raju, appearing for the ED, sought Jain’s medical examination by doctors at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) or Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) Hospital. He said that if the medical report states the need for treatment, then the investigating agency will not oppose it.
