NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Monday requested the position of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on a plea by Minister Satyendar Jain challenging a lower order transferring the money laundering case against him to another court.

Judge Yogesh Khanna issued an opinion on Jain’s plea and asked the investigative agency to file a “short answer” while listing the case for further consideration on September 28. Additional Solicitor General SV Raju, appearing for the ED, asked the court for time to state his stand on the plea.

Jain challenged the September 23 order by Senior District and Sessions Judge Vinay Kumar Gupta transferring the case to Special Judge Vikas Dhull from Special Judge Geetanjali Goel who was hearing his bail plea.

Senior lawyers N Hariharan and Rahul Mehra, representing the AAP leader, argued that even the Supreme Court asked for the bail plea to be decided in 14 days.
