Party spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said that CBI claimed that the two persons had been working with Jain since 2010 and had been using a particular landline number to transact with Hawala operators on his behalf.

Reacting to the development, the Aam Aadmi Party called the raids "vendetta politics". Another day, another raid! "Centre trying to silence dissenters via caged parrot", Delhi government spokesperson Arunoday Prakash tweeted.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team visited Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain's house today in connection with probe related to a money laundering case. Jain was questioned for over eight hours by its sleuths, CBI sources said.

In June, the CBI had questioned Jain with regard to a preliminary enquiry (PE) into accusations of money laundering lodged against him in April. Names of three shell companies - Prayas Info Solutions private limited, Akinchand Developers Private Limited and Managalyatan Projects Private Limited - have also cropped up during investigations.

However, Jain had dismissed the allegations after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) last month attached properties linked to him in the matter. If it is convinced that there exists prima facie material in the matter, it may register a regular case against the accused.
